  • Through the front door flanked by a 14th-century tower goes up on a narrow street littered flanked by ancient houses until reaching the Santa Maria Abbey built in the 12th and 13th centuries. Three naves, but very interesting crypt divided into four sections by pilasters and columns. Recommended visit

  • The Abbey of Monteveglio is set in the middle of a park, which I've visited. The ancient castle of Monteveglio remain only the entrance and the Tower dated around 1,300 d.C. already in the 8th century this castle was part of a system of fortifications to stop the Lombards beyond the confines of the exarchate. Around the year 1,000 became fief of Canossa and Monteveglio was fundamental for the desperate resistance that the Countess Matilde opposed the Emperor Henry IV, who saw his own son dying, in combat, at the entrance to the village. In really "tame" who held head, circa 1530, helped also by the weather, the Mercenaries, mercenaries of Charles V of Habsburg, who produced so much damage then with the "sack of Rome". The real attraction is the Romanesque and Romanesque church, Abbey. The Interior is on three levels. At the basic level, where they are the faithful, you can see columns and Roman capitals. The Church is divided into 3 naves with the presbytery on the crypt probably built before the year 1000. The Bell Tower is special: it does not rest on any Foundation, was built directly on one of the apses. The village is still inhabited and well maintained.

  • Led by Gianluca, great guide of the Park, we walked through the Park to discover nature. She pleasantly explained the plants growing in the area and some secrets related to the pollination of some flowers. We drove up to borghetto around the Abbey which I especially appreciated as it is held. the tour lasted 2 and a half hours for a modest sum of 5 euros each. I recommend to those who enjoy being in nature and also to those with children!

  • Fantastic afternoon full of nature and history. Of course the Council of Park underneath and walk up to the Abbey (30 minutes). There are many paths leading in other areas of varying lengths. Best dress up as more excursion that sportsmen since some points are a little challenging. Very good signs explaining everything from the history of the wall and the Abbey at typical plants.

  • The parco regionale dell'abbazia di Monteveglio is a medieval village offering great views and the chance to dine in a well run restaurant with good food. Also worth visiting the Abbey held very well by the locals.

  • Village that deserves to be visited at least once on the hills of Bologna, easy to reach from the province of Modena. Ideal for spending a quiet afternoon surrounded by nature. Overall the Monteveglio area is small, but it is characteristic for the arched doorway from which still today leads to the village, the floor is cobbled streets and old stone houses. Recommend to visit the Abbey and the Castle risare the year 1000. For those who want to stop to eat near the car park is an area of the lawn and wooden picnic table inside the village lies (Council) the Trattoria del borgo.
