  • I live a few kilometers from the beautiful Abbey, surrounded by nature but unfortunately not valued properly. Only recently have put the directions to this place; Today the Abbey is closed to the public due to construction. It's still a place to spend some time in quiet, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, admiring the architecture of the Church.

  • I was recently visiting this Abbey is talking I was amazed ... both for the beautiful Gothic façade for the placement of the site, in fact the complex was an important step in transit and stop on the Via Francigena. Inside the Church the ceiling is characterized by cross vaults and the walls are decorated with numerous frescoes. The architectural complex is still perfectly recognisable today in its original composition, which includes in addition to the Church, the monastery (with adjoining cloister preserved), the Hospital (which is preserved intact only the remarkable facade with pinnacles), at which the monks Antoniani provided assistance to the sick of the so-called shingles, as well as an extensive system of farmhouses. If you are in the area, perhaps to visit the Avigliana Lakes or the Sacra di San Michele, don't miss a visit to this beautiful sacred place.

  • Every time I pass by Buttigliera I always try to make a quick stop to admire it. Bella asked that seems to appear out of nowhere. Part of Mauritian order. Between the Church and the convent there is the "cloister", a small garden in which are visible three bays arched reopened and restored by D'andrade. The rest of the building has features typically rural: next to the Church is the hospital, where they were cared for the sick, then transformed into a farmhouse and which remains the ancient gateway.

  • We were too late in the day to go to the Sacra di San Michele, but my father-in-law remembered this church. It was really beautiful and the details were pretty amazing. I was especially knocked out by the frescos. I'm not a huge fan of religious art of this era, but these were really animated and interesting. The grounds are also very pretty.
  • Très interessant èglise abbatiale romanique sur la voie francigène
  • And magnificent
