Abbazia Santa Maria di Morimondo, Morimondo

(4.5/5 based on 380+ 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.

  • We went for a short visit to the Abbey on the occasion of a business lunch, a place of peace, a Gothic structure of nearly one thousand years was impressed, exudes peace and serenity. Unfortunately we chose the wrong restaurant eating stewed foods at the Trattoria San Bernardo, Anyway I suggest you take a trip to this place maybe with guided tour, I thought I wouldn't come back but I think a place so beautiful outside Milan it worths the money. Maybe I will document better on the restaurant in order not to ruin my day,

  • For years every now and then I go for a ride in Morimondo, is not far away and very cute. A walk in the Abbey and then a lunch at one of the restaurants in the area. In winter it is less beautiful but the tranquility of the place it deserves. For the restaurant ilPriore has a good value for money.

  • Beautiful Abbey between fields on the border between the province of Milan and Pavia. Flanked by a beautiful lawn. The Church is quite large with a pittance you can visit the restored and recovered after a fire ... a real spectacle is an alternative way to spend an afternoon!
