The first thing which appears to the visitor is the imposing church, with a large staircase leading up to the entrance. The whole monastery was built around the 11th and 12th centuries, however it was fully refurbished in the 15th and 16th centuries giving it...More

This is a beautiful abbey in the middle of the countryside. We visited the church, the shop where homemade products are sold, the garden, and then wandered behind the abbey past the long walls of the complex into the countryside. There are great views and...More

The outside of the church next to the abbey might not be very appealing. However, the regular guided tour - in Italian only - of the abbey's interior is very good. On weekdays, the monk's living quarters can be visited too. The shop has lots...More

One would easily drive by. Don't do that, just park your car and climb the stairs to the church. Enjoy the sight seeing in and out the church. And don't leave without a visit to the shop where their home made honey, candy and teas...More

We stopped here after visiting Petrarch's house a few miles away. Beautiful abbey, but unfortunately most of it had to be rebuilt in the 1800s after Napoleon and later the House of Savoy did a lot of damage to it. If you only speak a...More
