  • The abbey church is absolutely stunning, not just because of the fantastic ceiling frescoes, but because the whole combination of white limestone, brick painted, with geometric painted columns evokes ...  more »
  • While the rest of the Abbey did not pass unscathed the vicissitudes of history, whereby the Conventual part dates back to the late 1600, when it was rebuilt, the Church still retains the wall paintings dating back to the late 11th-early 12th century. The interactive museum convent isn't of much interest to the Church, partly frescoed and partly painted with colors on dry lime. Is a great Biblical story through images, with a complex and not easy to follow, given the fact that the vault is at a height of 17 meters above the ground. I saw people lying on benches in an effort to avoid a cervical attack! It is better to focus first on the accompanying booklet to visit the most interesting details and then follow them at a later time, or what is a narrative cycle of great historical and artistic interest risks becoming a jumble of images nonsense, as well as a strenuous exercise.

  • A surprise to find this, and well worth seeing. The interiors were not crowded giving me time to really appreciate the complexity of the paintings.  more »
