The Romanic church of San Cassiano in Valbagnola, is one of the most unique examples of Romanic style in Le Marche region. The first document which testifies the existence of the Church goes back to 1119 while other documents of later date narrate that in 1455 Pope Callisto III included the Church in the parish of San Nicolò in Fabriano. The building is structured and decorated following the Romanic architectural style, whose best examples can be found in the crypt and in the apse. The latter present a unique architectural space definition, which attracts the interest of many artists, architects and historians.
The history of the former abbey is less known but it is still possible to visit the rooms that in the past were used as the sagristy and those used as kitchens. Over the years, the building has been restored several times – considerable restoration works were undertaken after the earthquake in 1997 – so that at present it is in very good conditions.[divider] [button size=”large” color=”#c4750e” link=”http://www.tenutasancassiano.it/photos/gallery/chiesa-di-san-cassiano-in-valbagnola/” align=”left”]guarda le foto[/button]
