Abbazia Santa Maria di Morimondo, Morimondo
(4.5/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The Abbey of Morimondo is an ancient red-brick building, with no frills and decorations as befits a place where they prayed and there were Cistercian monks. Penalties a guided tour lasting about an hour, that explains in detail the architecture of both the Church and the old monastery with the charming cloister. At the end of the visit we are fortunate enough to attend a choral concert, with Christmas songs interpreted by voices and strings.

  • We returned to Morimondo, but not x visit the beautiful Abbey that we already know, but we came x the Christmas that is set up in piazza del borgo ... a very nice market where you can find several solutions for your Christmas gifts, I recommend going at sunset where the set of lights and the background of the Abbey create a unique and magical atmosphere, you x inevitably make a stop in Rome at this time!

  • One of the first Cistercian abbeys in Italy, completed at the end of 1100. An imposing building, adjacent to the monastery. A lovely day out in half an hour from Milan, in a place that looks out of time and the world. Morimondo is a tiny village that offers over the Abbey to visit together with the Museum, also in this period the Christmas markets also often are held in the year events and local organic produce markets. In Rome there are also some restaurants and a brewery which also serves dishes made with produce from the farm. Essentially a pleasant trip without going too far from Milan.
