"Since the 8th Century"

This abbey has been attributed to Benedictines since the 8th Century. It suffered a fire in 1168, and the present architectural structure dates from 1280. The four arched portico is a Renaissance addition. The bell tower is built on a medieval tower and is crowned with little arches. The frescoes that used to cover the walls mostly date from the 14th Century. There is the Judgement by an unknown painter, which is a vision of the hereafter, mixing classical platonism with Islamic culture in a literary and artistic vision of the 12th Century. In the back are the naked souls crossing a narrow bridge, some helped by an angel, others having a fatal exit in the river of boiling pitch. The fortunate souls enter into a rich house where they dress and dance. This is outside the town. From Piazza Garibaldi, take the road for Penne and then the panoramic route with the Convent of the Cappuccini. From Pescara, take the 16 road, then 151 in the direction of Penne.
