Abbazia Santa Maria di Morimondo, Morimondo

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.

  • We visited the Abbey and the monastery. Thanks to a very valuable guide we enjoyed everything about the meaning of the place.

  • In this beautiful Abbey or better in the monastery of Morimondo, name meaning "die alive", i.e. "live from resurrected," I hit really many knights who remember surely, even for the awesomeness of the place, their investiture. From the date of its foundation 1134, place of worship and forge of Arts and crafts. To see, then maybe indulge in culinary Musings local restaurants know well interpreted.

  • Simply amazing!!
  • I know the place for many years, I've seen it evolve and change, but the timeless atmosphere remains the same. Downside the Organization of guided tours inside the Church. I found a complete lack of respect to the place: groups of tourists who chattered with high tones, combined with the announcement concerning the subsequent visits broadcast piped from the amplifiers placed between the columns. I mean ... is an Abbey, not a market.

  • Beautiful Abbey, all in red brick on the outside, inside is truly immense, with striking frescoes. Interesting the chapel on the left, dedicated to Saint Rita. Nearby besides the panorama there are cabins for the Christmas markets.

  • In the Po Valley, isolated in a village well maintained. Very particular within composed of Romanesque and Gothic aisles. Very impressive the vast courtyard. Go for it.

  • Abbatia Sancte Marie de Morimundo. Located in the municipality of Morimondo in Milan. Example of Cistercian architecture close to the Gothic style built starting from the year 1182.
