  • If you are in the area, perhaps to visit one of the many castles of the dukedom, head to this Abbey which dates back to the 12nd century and located in a small fraction of the Alseno establishment. Very beautiful church, bare as all those Cistercians, but precisely for this very intimate and evocative. Very nice organ of 500. Charming the cloister, a true masterpiece. And don't miss a visit to liquoreria where you can buy some of the monks, especially liquor. We were lucky enough to be the only visitors that morning and the visit has become even more attractive.

  • Cistercian architecture, very well preserved, though with evident restorations. Beautiful and harmonious society the Church, the cloister, with some beautiful carved capitals of high artistic value and iconography. A visitor must do.

  • Left Castell'Arquato, we headed to the beautiful Abbey of Chiaravalle della Colomba, in the municipality of Alseno. It was nice to see you again, after I had visited many years ago. under renovation. It is said that St Bernard of Clairvaux around 1135, aided by the work of the monks he founded, the Cistercians, he drained the area to erect the Abbey, around which was later built the town. The entrance reminds me, with the proper proportions and the necessary differentiations, the Abbey of Chiaravalle in Milan, although then develops with an architecture quite different. Striking legend that wants a dove candida had vaulted before the eyes of the monks, outlining with spangles the perimeter of the complex, hence the name "Dove". Unfortunately, as was the case for other precious artistic heritage, under Napoleon, was suppressed as an institution and the goods were confiscated. Since that time the Abbey was the victim of neglect and abandonment, Today, restored to its glory, appears a gem of religious art. Surveying the cloister, well preserved and decorated capitals. Merits a visit.

  • This is a beautiful church in a peaceful village.
  • I arrived at 14 and it was all closed!?! I rang the doorbell of the convent by side repeatedly but no one responded. I was on a pilgrimage and I needed the stamp on the credential of Francigena. But the pilgrims arrive at any time of the day! or not!?! I went to the bar. Are passed back to the 14:30 and the Church was always locked but the door of the convent was ajar. I walked repeatedly knocking and asking permission out loud. Nothing! I knocked the door on the right. Nothing! I walked alone around the cloister (beautiful). Anyone. I walked into the Church from the inside doors (very nice). Anyone. I walked in the door right where before I had knocked asking always allowed aloud. All desert! I left unstamped.

  • It is a place of peace. Beautiful rug, the peristiglio with its garden, the little flea market and fishing charity for children. Must bring home the candy of the friars.
