  • L Abbey is really beautiful even the walk to get there and I have to say that the peace of the place is really strong! Don't leave before you've bought Imperial drops!

  • Quiet place to go and visit very quietly leaving outside the rest of the world. Definitely want to attend at any time because every season there has its charms. There are also stalls selling every gene, candies, honey, herbs, liqueurs, crafts etc. ecc.il everything produced by the friars. Recommend for couples, families, friends and even yourself. I attended with my family several times. The last time I went by motorbike with friends ... Gorgeous!! Do try ... ... highly recommended!

  • Historical place. Active monastery, here you can see these monks (lucky me, I saw the procession), extraordinary views of the Lake and the surrounding area. Produces excellent photos. Definitely worth a taste herbal liqueur, prepared by monks (can be purchased at the local bench)

  • Very beautiful place & worth the twisty-turny cobblestone roads to get there. We biked from the Domaso side of the lake which was an adventure (there are nice bike trails, but you do have to take the main road at times which can get a bit hairy). Very peaceful abbey that seems to be a hidden gem. Great views of Lake Como, nice olive trees, and pretty flowers. Must try the chocolate croissants from the cafe - the are the best we've had in Europe so far! Bathrooms are standard squat toilets (there was toilet paper, but I'd advise having tissues just in case :).
  • If you manage to find this place, that definitely requires to have a car or motorbike, you will enter another dimension. To me the greatest surprise of como. The monastery is amazing, very quiet atmosphere, great Park and a fantastic place to have a picnic, on your way to verona for instance. I strongly recommend this place far from tourists and difficult to find.
  • A short break from crowded roads and cities. Road there is challenging, but worth to go there.
  • Unique
  • It's a magic place.
