famous guests since 1818
Almost two hundred years have passed after the conversion from a Franciscan monastery grounded in the thirteenth century by St Francis of Assisi first into an inn and after that into a Historical hotel designated "Hotel Luna Convento" which has been continuously managed by five generations of the Barbaro family.
In this place, in the ancient cloister, there are also two artistic panels created by Angelo Tajani when it comes to the historical research and his brother Claudio for the graphics and photographs, illustrating the path of tourism since the time of travel of the "Grand Tour" to this day.
The panels show the origin of visitors from all five continents through a selection of autographs, appraisals, poems and images extracted from the "Golden Books" of the guests of the hotel. Travelers, among which stands out international personalities of the clergy, culture, art, politics and of the aristocracy, were drawn to these places by the beauty of the coast, from the history of the ancient Maritime Republic and from the remains of the apostle Andrew buried in the crypt of the Cathedral.
