  • Beautiful Abbey built in the 12th century in Romanesque style, located on the via Francigena in the area of Manfredonia, towards morning. The exterior of this small church made of white stone retains much of the original structure: the magnificent portal with elegant decorations and different reliefs on the façade and sides. The Interior was restored in the 20th century so as to eliminate several changes made over the centuries and to bring it as close as possible to the original shape. Simple and pure lines the Interior is striking and inspires a sense of essential religiosity. Famous hole of the Gnomon that casts on the day of the summer solstice the outline of a small rose window in eleven rays. The Church was used by the Knights Templar, of which remain in the area adjacent the remains (recently restored) of an ancient hospital. If you find yourselves in this area, don't miss the opportunity to visit this gem.

  • I was this morning, before going to San Giovanni Rotondo. It was all restored: really nice! But the works have yet to finish. Yes they do also tours. The Council also illustrative signs with some historical info.

  • An oasis of tranquillity just steps away from a large artery. Visit is a bit like time travel and no LL space.

  • Abbey of the Hospitallers and Teutonic order, 1100. Fabulous architecture, but overall to be restored before the final breakup. Worth visiting.

  • The ritual of the Sun On 21 June each year from about 10 centuries at 12 o'clock we witness the wonderful spectacle of the eleven "petals" designed by a beam of sunlight coming through the small rose window located in the Central Vault forming in the middle of the two pillars a luminous Crown clockwise, announcement of the summer solstice.
