Visiting this abbey is a very typical experience. You have the feeling you visit an abbey where time has stood stil. Not since the middel ages but since beginning of the 20th century. That experience makes the visit unique. Unfortunately, large parts are not open...More

If possible try to schedule a tour of the interesting marble interior but especially down in the crypt where the original church was and the collection of manuscripts renown throughout Europe.

The Benedictine monks or parishioners must have had a lot of money as this monastery church is very grand. The interior is very fancy with beautiful marble work. Worth a visit if you are passing by.

We were also staying at the Hotel Scapolatiello and had time to walk through the village to the church. Beautiful historical property if you can arrange a tour do it the moment one steps in side of the church the scent is of polished wood.

This is a most beautiful mediaeval monastery which still houses about ten working monks. The architecture of the building is astounding - it is actually built into cliff and incorporates the cliff face. The guided tour is worth taking, showing the beautiful library and the...More
