The Abbey of San Fruttuoso is a Benedictine monastery from the year 1000 built in a little cove on the sea: a true oasis in a unique setting. The architecture is perfectly integrated with its natural context. Precisely the inaccessibility of the place and the presence of a source of fresh water made it, in the eighth century AD, an ideal place for the foundation of a church. According to tradition, the martyr Fruttuoso chose the church site: he appeared in a dream and ordered the bishop of Tarragona, Prospero, who was fleeing from Spain, to set up an abbey in that specific site and use it to protect his saint remains from the Arabs. The facility is managed by FAI, the Italian Environmental Fund.
