Abbazia di Sant'Antimo, Castelnuovo dell'Abate

4.7
A former Benedictine monastery with a Carolingian edifice, Abbazia di Sant'Antimo offers archaeological intrigue. While there is no proof Charlemagne founded the site, the early foundations date back to his era. The abbey's humble interior houses Carolingian-era carvings depicting animals and plants. You'll see the inspiration for these works of art right outside the chapel doors, where vineyards, mountains, and landscaped gardens invite you to explore.

    Just back in this splendid Abbey after two years and I felt an immense sadness. There is no presence of religious that they did has millenary tradition of the liturgy in Latin. In their place a combination of dubious nature but with the clear mission of profit. The site today is a market. Besides, I have seen the rudeness and the inadequacy of a lady who didn't speak Italian either. We want to talk then of yoga in a logo there stuck anything and that indeed is doctrinally opposed? I hope they come back better times for s. Antimo.

  • Definitely the most beautiful abbey in Italy! We've come here for at least 20 years. In the beginning there were almost no tourists. Now the way down is paved, paid parking and there even is a shop at the top of the hill..... But still it's the most beautiful abbey of Italy :-) Try to stay for a service when you're here.
  • Pastoral sorrounding. Classic Tuscanic views
  • We didn't stay long but it is quite a place to behold.
  • The monastery started in 8th century and still in service.
  • Plan your visit that you will be there when they are chanting.
