  • I know the area for many years and I know the evolution of this park, which is well worth a visit. To see the small village that embodies that jewel that is the Abbey. It was built by Matilda of Canossa to thank the Madonna for defeating Henry IV., and we are at the end of the year 1000. The style we admire today is predominantly Romanesque and there is every indication that this really is a magical place because there is an atmosphere of great peace. In the micro-village there is a good restaurant. Around there are many easy hiking trails. Who has good legs can arrive with the "little train" from Bologna in Crespellano then do the walking tour, and on the train you can also load the bike. Next, between farms and restaurants you eat well.

  • For those who want to spend hours stunning outdoors surrounded by nature and doing walks "off the street" I recommend this park. Also suitable for children

  • Lovely place
  • 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.

  • Reach the top of the Hill you are faced to the ramparts of the fortress of the village completely restored. Walk you can take the small street centeale and poke around on the walls and in cortipasseggiando around the Abbey. The Church is very simple and poor but charming, with two levels of altars. We couldn't visit the courtyards where reside the monks but we come across one with a long beard with the habit by brother, totally in tune that the spiritual atmosphere of the place. From the village there are nature trails that offer spectacular views of the surrounding nature.
