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 and especially the Church is truly a gem also has been restored to its original form with an incredible attention to not only recover the materials and architectural spaces, but the sense that in these times you breathe, an extinct world in harmony with the campaign that these days of autumn are a perfect Crown.

  • Beautiful Abbey of Morimondo. Fabulous Renaissance wooden choir finely worked. Very nice brick columns. Very impressive Abbey, surrounded by a large park, where, especially on Sundays, they pour a zillion visitors. Morimondo is a beautiful country to visit over the weekend, being far from Milan.
