  • Day! The title is no accident ... in fact it is one of the few (if not the only) Church of Byzantine-Greek Rite. Founded by the monk Nilus from Rossano, the real name is territorial Abbey of Santa Maria di Grottaferrata but is better known as the Abbey of San Nilo. An "Oasis" especially in an already pleasant little town, that of Grottaferrata. To visit possibly during working days or weekdays, to breathe the atmosphere ... Re-opened since April, the Museum inside. To see (through date with the various associations that operate on site), the cryptoporticus of the convent. The rest, as always, is discovery. ..:)

  • Deplorable visit and denied on 5 April 2017 at 14: 00. In theory the site is open non-stop from 7 h to 19.30 h. In reality we were renewed to the exit without any explanation by person unpleasant and rude. Really a bad experience.

  • The free tour is very extensive with lots of info, but only in Italian.
  • It's a brautiful church bearing 1000-year history!
  • It is the only Catholic Abbey in Italy with the Byzantine rite. On Sundays there are guided tours. With the guide you can learn about the underside, with buildings of ancient Rome.
