Photographer's Note

Abbey of San Giovanni ad Insulam - Gran Sasso Island of Italy (TE)
Also known as San Giovanni al Mavone, it stands isolated on a small hill that flanks the Mavone river, in the homonymous valley. It is located near Isola del Gran Sasso, in the territory of the province of Teramo in Abruzzo, immersed in the Apennine chain at the foot of the Gran Sasso whose peaks of Corno Grande and Corno Piccolo on one side, and the Prena and Bandiera mountains on the other. they frame the panorama. The church and suggestive ruins remain of the abbey structure.
The church rises above the crypt and the entire structure was erected at different times between the 11th and 13th centuries.
