Abruzzo. Have you visited the thirteenth-century cloister of the Abbey of San Giovanni in Venere?

After visiting the church and the crypt (read the article on the crypt here), the visit to the abbey of San Giovanni in Venere cannot end with dignity in the wonderful and luminous thirteenth century cloister from which it is possible to access or through the door side of the church or from the convent.

The Cloister extends over three sides (the fourth is the north wall of the church) and is adorned with elegant three-light windows. Although the cloister was partially reconstructed in the years between 1932 and 1935, among the various exposed stone materials, of certain interest is the inscription of the abbot Oderisio II, in which the construction in 1165 of the new church is officially attested by St. Giovanni in Venus.
