    When the heavy gate of the Abbey at 2.30 pm finally opened, we were struck by a short prayer service (vocals + organ) of 8 monks ... Best engaging. It is also enjoyable to the once busy, exciting Center of Milan to flee and ff Corveto metro station to take the bus to a stop or 77, 6 further ending up in an oasis of peace

    the Abbey, inside outside, oozing prayer and contemplation everywhere. It made me feel the presence of our Lord and of all the monks who have testified here, with their singing and their daily work.

    Very nice and well maintained complex. Interesting guided tour, bought at a low price through Groupon. I also recommend a visit to the mill and the "Giardino dei semplici" where it is harvested numerous medicinal plants.

  • Hidden treasure, wonderful church and tower, impressive cloister in sadly neglected surroundings...with a delightful shop with a large variety of monastic food, cosmetic and Pharmaceuticals herb extracts
  • Amazing piece of Christian history dating back to 1135 in the Milan suburbs.
  • Remarkable abbey with outstanding artworks.
  • On the outskirts of Milan there is this beautiful Abbey. Beautiful shop run by the monks, I bought some products (that prices though!). The climate is impressive. For those who want to spend a day on the Green, in silence and without leaving the Council. The visits to the mill are at different times and dates.

  • Beautiful Abbey in medieval style. Visiting the Interior seems to take a trip back in time 1,000 years. They also organize events for children, like the Easter egg hunt and others. Engaging the market. Nice garden with garden. Also worth seeing are the old mill.
