Monte Cassino, Cassino

Built on the site of a sixth-century monastery, Monte Cassino was designed by some of southeastern Europe's finest artists before its papal consecration in 1041. The abbey has been restored since its destruction in 1944 during the Battle of Monte Cassino. View relics, mosaics, manuscripts, and other artifacts as you wander the hallways and courtyards. The hike to the monastery, which is on a 520 m (1,706 ft) high hill, is extremely steep. Plan to take public transportation to the top.

  • The Abbey is really very interesting to visit both for its historical content and for the strong spirituality that breathes. Amazing miracles performed by St. Benedict of Nursia. The advice I can give is to book a guided tour because you get a chance to see the cell of St. Benedict, inlet stone (PAX) ... and other places without guidance no one could see. Beautiful view!

  • Marvelous Abbey which has seen 1500 years of history. Lighthouse of Western civilization underwent 4 destruction. Always risen. Most recently in 1944 destroyed by Allied bombing. Now rebuilt it faithfully presents 3 beautiful cloisters and many buildings. The Cathedral still unfinished frescoes on the ceiling but rebuilt with polychrome marbles. Very nice Museum and rich with the history of the Abbey.

  • Too bad he only just over half an hour (closes at 19), but it is worth seeing. Impressive and beautiful views, mozzafiato...la Church, then, is really gorgeous. Also worth visiting the Museum. A piece of Italian history well preserved ... and free!
