  • a really nice place to visit, to 40 km from Sassari, the Romanesque church stands on a hill from where you can see also New York ... an immense panorama. We have been there several times, I never spent the night I ate at the monastery but I know you can do it. Recommended step for who loves art and is on holiday in Sardinia.

  • Normally the monasteries are almost all wrapped in an aura of charm all their own and not comparable to other places; that of s. Piero di Sorres (Borutta, province of Sassari) is among those who Excel in this sense. I say "even" in this sense, namely that of the magic in the air, because you will be enchanted even the gorgeous architecture that surrounds you just entered and you don't leave anymore. Have been there several times over the years because they live nearby and occasionally I, together with my husband, the freedom to go there to listen to the Holy Mass and take the opportunity to ask to be able to confess since the friars are always very helpful. Experience the Confession in that monastery. After receiving the sacrament of reconciliation you can go to church to attend mass. In the silence of all those present materializes the procession of the celebrant with the confreres who, crossing the aisle and the nave are going to the altar for the Eucharist; Gregorian chant is the only practiced so you can enjoy all the cultural, spiritual, and emotional involvement that Gregorian chant alone can convey and, trust me, if it tells you is a singer of Opera music! The setting takes place with ease but nothing is left to chance or even less overlooked: some of the friars have specific assignments as accompanied by the sound of a beautiful organ to songs of celebration; recite the readings, the responsorial Psalm singing, distribute Holy Communion. At the end, with the final song resumes the procession to the convent. In the monastery of Sorres there is also a shop selling herbal products created by the same brothers, popular also because the products are very valid. There is also the possibility to stay for lunch (of course experiencing at least 3/4 days before!); prices are modest and good and abundant (the same meals served to the hosts. It is also possible to spend the day in spiritual retreat in organized groups privately wondering to the friars for the hospitality and for meals. Welcoming, spotless and a neatness freak where the essentiality of the furniture is main prerogative. The only drawback, but even that "normal" in a similar environment, the intense cold inside the Church during winter, while in summer it is really cool that you can enjoy a pleasant one; the rest of the building is, of course, heated and cozy. In short, when you want to rest, personal meditation or in a group, desire for simplicity and want to enjoy art in all directions, go to the monastery of s. Pietro di Sorres becomes natural and rewarding.

  • The Church is part of a vast medieval monastery, which unfortunately largely buried and and laboriously archaeological work on. A beautiful hiking trail facilitates orientation. I find not too high given the huge cost the price of admission for the Church of 4 euros, to come up with the small community of Sorres has, even if the EU greatly helps.
