  • In this corner of paradise you can reach it on foot by crossing a small forest with cobblestone streets. There are about 25/45-minute uphill walk. The Abbey is beautiful and kept very well. The scenery is breath taking and after the walk you can relax in the green meadow.

  • The Abbey of San Pietro al Monte, despite being one of the most important Romanesque in Lombardy, is located halfway up a mountain of 1000 metres just a few kilometres from Lecco and is only accessible with a leisurely walk in the Woods. It would be necessary to study deeply the history of the period in order to understand why a large religious building was built in a place so arduous. The fact remains that the harmonious structure of the basilica and the oratory, connected by a stone staircase continues to show itself in their beauty, thanks to major renovations and the loving care of an Association of volunteers, to visitors who have the energy to climb a steep trail. The route, about 3 km from the town of Civate, takes about an hour. The two religious buildings are opened particularly in workshops, which are organized tours by friendly volunteers. The interiors are suggestive and retain, despite centuries of neglect, interesting frescoes, precious vestments and rare stucco rosati.

  • Here you breathe really a feeling of peace and tranquility. It also seems to go back in time, at the time of construction. Very good the conservation work of the Association that takes care of all environments. Returned twice this year. The first time on the occasion of the 25 April I was lucky enough to attend a choral concert in the Church: beautiful atmosphere and very good acoustics.

  • 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.
  • Ci sta
  • 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
