This is an amazing former monastery which is definitely worth visiting. We took the bus from Pisa. No English translations, but fascinating to see anyway. Hardly anyone there. Visits hourly at half past the hour.

An interesting visit to this old monastery. The guide was very helpful, and had a lot of knowledge about the history etc. It was very peaceful and quiet and i was quite envious of the monks! Worth visiting!
