  • The charity is long, especially if you're used to go to the mountains, but the Abbey and the scenery all worthwhile the effort! It really is a heritage to be protected and visit, in the midst of greenery and clean air!

  • It's a great place. Walking in the woods for a little less than an hour from Civate and arrive at the Abbey. On Sundays after church volunteers have organized the moments in which accompany those who request a guided tour inside the Church. The front lawn is perfect for a relaxing break

  • We thought we'd take a walk of health instead the rolling hillside streets became short in a forest trail. The country road became a staircase of stones and started to climb among the Oaks. The slope suddenly became strong, my breath became short immediately. Soon will end up there we said Recalling that the guide said that it was just a pleasant walk of about 40 minutes ... Too bad it wasn't like that at all and that we also knew only entering the path that the Abbey would be closing soon. The thought of not making it to arrive on time and that the effort to end even a hoax hovered in our minds so much to make us impatient and gloomy. It was interesting to see how the physical fatigue and anxiety they had transformed our spirit, in just a few minutes before you light and cheerful, in a heavy cloud and angry. After 20 minutes of that climb relentlessly, we didn't talk anymore, we were just trying to not get caught by mistrust and focused on breathing and the footsteps. After 35 minutes of the stairway path seemed endless, not excelled more than breathing, but we had to hurry so as not to frustrate the effort, so we had to continue without stopping and torture was that we couldn't ever catch my breath. The fear that at 15 o'clock, as it was written, closed the doors of the monastery made us move forward as sleepwalkers. The body was only a car, breathing a pain, will the engine. There were 10 minutes at 15 when a man coming up as we do, but physically more prepared, surpasses us as light as an Elf and advises us that the worst part is over, that soon we will see the sky and we get there. Maybe it was sent from some Saint, maybe she moved with compassion when they saw us so silent and contrite, but his words have saved me because that last stretch, if I didn't know that it was your last, I couldn't get past it. The slope was even greater, the Spanish Earth and stones high more and more demanding and we were so tired that we had to stop every minuto...ma never enough to really soothe the heart beat. Finally here is that the blue sky appeared, and with him the vision of a stone wall. There were a couple of bends, felt the heart the throat and head throbbing, I was just a mess ... and I feared they closed soon afterwards. Were the 14.58. We have reached the gate of the Basilica bells clapped their 15, the autumn sun warmed the cold sweat while I struggled on the steep steps leading to the entrance, smiling. Wait, wait still my mind screamed, fearing he could not enter the place to which he had endured so much pain. But as when you exit a bad dream here is that fear disappears: the door was opened and the place awaited us silent, while the shadow of stone joined the filtered light of the Sun. The place was nice, the result of contemplation and intelligence of the monks who wanted, but you sensed that whoever had built wanted the route to reach the sacred place was Pilgrim's inner transformation tool, that these were put in front of the toil, their limits and their own willpower, so I understood that the true value of that place was above all in the journey that everyone had to take to get there. As I sat at last with the breath still labored on wooden benches looking at ancient times included what I had always known but not yet so visibly experienced: in an effort to get a volunteer, in faith to succeed and in helping fellow is the sense of spiritual path, or not?

  • Romanic painted church nested in a beautiful moutain landscape. One of the most charming places I know, when not crowdy.
  • Fabulous but know that to reach it it's a serious walk that can be slippery.

  • Beautiful masterpiece surrounded by nature. With a walk for all of about one hour it is possible to admire this marvel. Contact volunteers for confirmations about opening and guided tours

  • A triumph of Romanesque that worth the hassle of an hour uphill approach; the vision of the Church leaving the forest is breathtaking
