  the church and convent of Saint Anthony
by call_me_rhia

La Chiesa e il Convento di Sant'Antonio (church and convent of Saint Anthony) is just outisde the village. It was built in 1590 next to an existing hospice for locals and travellers alike. Many different friars have lived in this convent - and at times it was even abondoned and closed down. At some point is was even sold to a local family.

Today the convent is again used as a convent, and this since 1938. Outside, in the courtyard, there's a bronze statue of Saint Anthony... as well as great views of the village of Scanno.

Directions: just outside the old town
