"Legends & Stories of Saints"

On a smooth, sloping rock, this place is still full of legends of miracles and saints who are entwined in the history, and from whom this rock takes its name. The story of the construction of the Oratorio della Madonna della Croce all revolves around the tale of an apparition of the Virgin. In memory of this there is a procession from the Church of San Michele every May 3, holding a statue from the 19th Century. The Parish of San Michele was restored in 1934, and has parts that were rebuilt in Romanesque style. The Church of San Rocco has one portal on which its foundation date of 1868 is written. The facade is neoclassical, covered in blocks of stone, and has semi-columns. The triangular front has a circular window. On the wall is a simple, brick bell tower. To get here, take the A25 from Pescara and take the Casauria-Torre de Passeri exit.
