  • Not to be missed if you are around the monferrato. The portal is a gem. Should check the hours of operation.

  • I was visiting this week, Abbey is a Romanesque church with a beautiful carved stone arch above the entrance portal. Carved decorations on the outside and inside in need of restoration, some are very damaged. Some buildings that are part of the complex of the Abbey are badly maintained and other totally abandoned.

  • There we were busy with the historic Hydro Gates since 1990 of the Abbey of the Holy faith of Cavagnolo, tossing the alarm for the degradation and above all for the deep crack that disfigured the portal one of the most beautiful Monferrato high era artifacts. In return today at least a sigh of relief, the portal has been restored and half of the roof restored, meritorious work due to staff work by Giampaolo Bardazza President of Idea Cheese which is managed primarily to troubleshoot properties (now the Church is dicoesana before was of the Marist fathers who retain the large complex next door) and raise funds by region and by the Compagnia di San Paolo. Returning to the church you have to be careful with signs (poor) on the outskirts of Cavagnolo (along the hilly rural house-Turin) and then move on to a narrow street in green and the first rural housing on the right is that of the Holy faith. It's risen early 12th century by Benedictine monks from the Abbey of Sainte-Foy-de-Conques (Auvergne, France). It is on the streets of the great pilgrimages. One hundred meters of ascent in green. Here is the Church. The portal looks great, alone is worth the visit, to be distilled figure to figure: an example: the winged Griffin with the lion's tail. Impressive inside, essential, brick and stone. The three naves (Burgundian and Provencal Romanesque art) are divided by cruciform pillars, on each of which there are interesting capitals (Gates had counted 48 admiring especially fantastic beasts). The high altar is an eighteenth-century addition. Small organ at the side of the altar under a bright ototcentesco fresco. In the left aisle a gravestone with coat of arms for the prior don Paolo Coardi, papal household of two popes, buried here in 1728. The belfry (left side) was created by raising the lantern that towered high above the cruise on the southern side of the Church is decorated by a small mullioned window. Large hydrangea bushes refine the entire complex. We hope to return to completed restorations. Strength Bardazza.
