Incompiuta complex

Archeological park in Venosa that has the shell of a church that was never completed. The remains of mosaic floors, the carvings on the doors and capitals, the sheer scope of the park...breathtaking and incredibly fascinating.

Beautiful church that is part of the archaeological park on the outskirts of town. The murals and subflooring give a great idea of how the church was originaly decorated.

Fascinating ancient church
Oct 2016 • Couples
Analogous to San Clemente in Rome, Santissima Trinità was built in the Norman Age over a Paleo-Christian church which was built over Roman Temple. This alone makes it a place to visit, however there are also some beautiful frescoes. Most striking, in my opinion, are those of Saint Catherine of Alexandria and an unknown Bishop.
The archaeological digs are adjacent and also a must see if you are there.

Ancient & fascinating monastic complex
Dec 2011 • Couples
On the outskirts of town is the huge monastic complex Abbazia della Santissima Trinita, built above a Roman temple in 1046. It all looked closed when we visited ... then an old man beckoned us into the church and turned on lights so we could view the frescoes and mosaics.

The Church of Norman Knights
The complex of The Holy Trinity is an interesting building that started as a pagan temple and was consecrated as a Christian Church in 1059. Inside you will find art work from the time when the Normans controlled this part of Italy and they buried some of their most important leaders here, including William Iron Arm, Drogo, Humfrey and Robert Guiscard.

The church is located on the east end of town right next to the Roman excavations. The hours vary but the lions out front are always friendly and inviting.

Attached to the rear of the Church is L'Incompiuta, the shell of a grand plan for a larger church that was never completed. This complex is always open and is interesting to walk amongst the majestic walls and columns. Be sure to look for the pieces of stone that were excavated from the nearby Roman ruins.
