I was really impressed. A warm feeling inside cold walls. Marvellous. Everything stood there. A museum free entrance to add additional information to this charming church. No painting on the walls to add charm, it didn't need it. It had more. A place to get married.

Wondering around the beautiful abbey church was a great experience. Remembering that over the years people have worshipped here. It holds a treasure .... The reliquary of Saint Clement who was one of the early apostolic fathers, Bishop of Rome AD 88-99.

Well described in both English and Italian in the museum. It can be found on the right of the front door. Make sure you walk around the outside to appreciate the gardens.

The abbey is beutifully restored. The stone monuments inside are carefully ciselled and look like new. Worth a detour.

it's impressive! we heard about it and stopped by during our stay in abruzzo. it's worth a visit! dating back in the middle age (871 according to Chronicon Casauriense), it is very well preserved and still used today.. (luckily we arrived an hour before a wedding was celebrated).

We don't live far from this wonderful Abbey but it's the first time we visited it. We were not disappointed, just sorry we had waited so long! Over and around the bronze door there are lovely historical sculptures. Go down to the crypt, it's really something. There is also a small museum and lovely gardens. There is parking outside and...

We visited this Abbey with a friend. It is a majestic building and very tranquil. There are gardens to wander around, though not big, and a museum. It is only open in the mornings so timing of your visit is essential. I would certainly put this on the agenda for other friends to visit.

A very beautifull and tranquil place. Never tire of visiting this Abbey. The Gardens are well worth a stroll around. Access to the Abbey is good and there is plenty of parking.
