This church was built by the Benedectine monks in the twelfth century.
It is situated not far from Pianella, a village in the province of Pescara.
On the faĆ§ade you can see a finely decorated portal which shows on the architrave a relief of the Madonna on the throne among the Saints and King David. You can also appreciate a very nice 8 rayed rose window. The three small apses show some simple, but elegant terracotta decorations.
The church has a nave and two aisles divided by round arches and has a ceiling formed by visible trusses. The fine ambo is made of limestone and decorated with the four evangelistsĀ symbols. It was created by master Acuto in 1180.
You can still see on some pillars and on the apses some frescoes made in the twelfth and fifteenth century
