Fossanova Abbey wheelchair accessible tours facilities

 

Fossanova Abbey wheelchair accessible tours is located at the feet of the Lepini Mountains in the comune of Priverno, province of Latina.

Is one of the most important examples of Cistercian monastic architecture in central Italy.

Cistercian monks put in a type of vault on the remains of a Roman villa in a previous Benedictine cenoby from the IX century.

In 1187 they began the reconstruction of the abbatial complex in Burgandy style.

The Fossanova Abbey wheelchair accessible tours locality took its name of "fossa nova" from a new drainage canal that the monks dug to direct the waters of the Amaseno.

The church, with three naves, has a basilica structure and is illuminated by the splendid rose window of the façade from the side windows and from the three mounted above the apse by a rose window with eight lobes as well as by the "triburio", a tower-lantern, replacing the original which was destroyed by lightning.

The large cloister, a beautiful area with strong, spiritual character, is surrounded by a portico with elegant coupled small columns on three sides in Romanesque style with rounded arches and simple equal small columns.

The fourth side is Gothic style with pointed arches and different columns.

The majestic interior spaces are the grand capitular hall, whose pavement is around one meter below that of the cloister, and the vast refectory located one meter higher, both covered by large vaults.

Here, in a small chapel on the first floor, St Thomas D'Aquino spent his last hours and died here in 1274.
