Saint Bartholomew Abbey

Saint Bartholomew Abbey
Saint Bartholomew Abbey

12th century, one of the most beautiful and best preserved monuments of the Cistercian medieval art of Abruzzi

Of the ancient Saint Bartholomew fortress-abbey founded in 962 by Bernardo from Linduno, only the church with its beautiful façade preceded by a portico with two arcades remains. The building combines Romanesque-style and Burgundian features. The rectangular portal with doorjambs and architrave decorated with a ribbon carved with vegetable volutes encloses a rich fantastic bestiary which recalls, in the style and decoration theme, the hand of Maestro Acuto, author of the ambon of Pianella.
