Architecture and Stone Work in Abruzzo

Each time I travel back to Abruzzo and see the magnificent churches and buildings, I know I am amidst so much history.
If the stones could talk what would they tell us? I imagine the many artisans from the different eras – the Roman times, Medieval then later in Renaissance and Baroque times who worked tirelessly to produce these masterpieces we have today.

Carvings at sides of doors at San Giovanni in Venere Abbey.
The fine details, the symbols and imagery and stories told through the stonework is amazing. Under Frederick II in the 1200’s the arts and crafts were fostered and many craftsmen were brought in.

Here are some other examples of great carvings I always go back and see time and time again:
