It is located in the populous and dynamic village of Guardia Vomano and it is an ancient church dating back to the ninth century, commissioned by Ermengarda, daughter of the Lombard emperor Ludovico II and already part of an important monastic complex.

The current building is the result of the reconstruction that took place in the first half of the 12th century. The interior, which is accessed through a portal of early 1100, contains several important treasures, starting from the remains of the ancient and original building. It has the typical configuration of the Benedictine architecture, distinguished by three naves separated by brick columns that support the large round arches, visible wooden roofing and ending each one with a semicircular apse.

At the end of the central aisle, in the presbytery area which is accessed via some steps, is one of the oldest cibori of Abruzzo, dating back to the eleventh century. In the crypt below, however, is the statue of San Clemente.
