Hermitage of Sant'Egidio

What to see in Scanno, L'Aquila, Abruzzo


the church is in Romanesque style rural. The main facade is made of squared stone to view. The entrance is preceded by a porch with a barrel vault at Sesto lowered. The prothyrum is surmounted by a small window to oculus framed by a stone modanata. In single lancet window at the top right there we had to find very likely a bell.

The inside of a quadrangular shape to house a single nave covered by a barrel vault with lowered sixth, has an altar simple resting against the wall of the apse. Above the altar a fresco of Saint Egidio realized by teachers of the Neapolitan school in 1796. At the sides of the facade there are frescoes on the theme of the Passion of Jesus.
