#1 of 19 in Historic Sites in Province of Milan
The Cistercian abbey at Abbazia Santa Maria di Morimondo lies in peaceful, green surroundings. Founded in 1134 by a group of monks from Morimondo, the abbey’s life revolves around the central cloister. The door and arches of the façade contrast with the stark interior, where you can see a fresco by Bernardino Luini, a wooden choir from 1522, and a 15th-century crucifix. Learn about abbey life in the Middle Ages in the museum, which explores such topics as food, cooking, energy, water, and architecture over the history of the abbey.

    A corner out of time a few kilometers from Milan. Beautiful temple complex well maintained. Surrounded by greenery and inside a beautiful village. Also worth seeing are the choir

    On Sunday one guided tour at 15.30, we were lucky we found a volunteer well prepared and very addictive. Without his directions many particulars of the church there would be escaped (a column different from the other, the central door, centred with respect to the wall, bricks of different colors and between a column and the other different arcs, the wooden choir with pieces wedged between them and without any nail and with inscriptions in gold). Lovely rooms overlooking the cloister, wonderful one with the fireplace. Thanks to the guidance we were able to visit all 4 floors with many frescoes and a small museum with various works. Beautiful, the visit is worth the cost 7 euros. Visit accompanied by the chanting of monks.

  • Simply amazing!!
  • Historical place, Abbey and cloister more than well kept. Guided tours for nice price. Lots of green around, where you can relax in the Sun or have a picnic. Perfect destination for a trip out of town. For everyone, there are paths for disabled and buggies.

  • Amid the countryside of Lombardy, lost in the Green and not far from Ticino, he hides this small but pleasant village. Walking through the alleys you arrive at Abbey in Lombard Romanesque style with red bricks comes off the vegetation. Very well preserved and under restoration to return in full in its full splendour is the ideal destination for a short trip not far from Milan or for those headed to visit the nearby Vigevano.

  • Destination for many bike rides, the Abbey of Morimondo always leaves a particular sense of smallness with its grandeur. Surrounded by fields, remains pristine and surreal as if everything were left during its heyday. Special view from courtyard near the villa (where now a venue the joint) the Valley of Ticino.

  • Important Lombard Church in the middle of the picturesque rural landscape. Noteworthy the suburb that introduces.
