Wondering around the beautiful abbey church was a great experience. Remembering that over the years people have worshipped here. It holds a treasure .... The reliquary of Saint Clement who was one of the early apostolic fathers, Bishop of Rome AD 88-99.

We don't live far from this wonderful Abbey but it's the first time we visited it. We were not disappointed, just sorry we had waited so long! Over and around the bronze door there are lovely historical sculptures. Go down to the crypt, it's really...More
