  • I attend regularly for several years now this beautiful Abbey and I must say that never fails to engage me emotionally and spiritually. I agree with all those reviewers who rated at the highest level the place. Lovely and very suggestive appears already see it from the street: a postcard; beautiful in any season of the year. (Just wish the presence of some construction scaffolding to support a neighboring building constantly being restored). If we think about the historicity of the site the charm is greatly increased. The Church in its simplicity and in its modest dimension, invites for recollection and prayer. Being placed on the via francigena is a privileged stage for those who need to refuel and rest overnight or two. Those who wish can deepen their knowledge of history or ask advice from religious and spiritual nature to paterno and amenable Father Nunzio, Rector of the Abbey; in him will find comfort, peace, serenity and lots of understanding. A visit to this place can only increase the desire for prayer and respect for beauty and history.

  • ... After a stop at the foot of the beautiful Via Francigena, you arrive at this charming Abbey outside of MORTARA, isolated between the busy State and canals and ditches. Is currently under restoration and rebuilding roofs so I couldn't visit: the hope is that it will return soon to be a waypoint and visits of pilgrims and tourists. The atmosphere is nice, out of time, a monument to the friendship that knows no boundary of death ... I intend to visit it back inside, finished the restoration ...

  • According to tradition, the church stands on the site of the battle, in which the Lombards of King Desire were defeated by the Franks of Charlemagne, the Abbey is the oldest monument of Mortara. Was founded in the 5th century, and then repeatedly, restored and rebuilt. The present building dates back almost entirely to 1540. The Interior contains frescoes by Giovanni da Milano, a beautiful church worthy of visit.

  • Fifth century Church on the via Francigena. The history of the Abbey remains inextricably linked to the battle fought in its vicinity in 773 between the Lombards and Charlemagne's Frankish army and merges with the echoes of the legendary exploits of two Paladins francs friend and Amelio, Squires of Charlemagne, perished during that battle. Of them it is said that, although they were buried in two separate niches, were found in the same Tomb. The Chronicles tell that in antiquity there was in the Abbey a parish church dedicated to St Eusebius of Vercelli, founded by Charlemagne himself is sure that the Bishop Sant'Albino Alcuin founded here a monastery, where he ordered his priests and deacons disciples; to pay homage to the teacher, the students gave the monastery in Sant'Albino of Angers, Bishop died in 550. From the dedication of the monastery came from the title of parish church of Sant'Eusebio to Abbazia di Sant'Albino.

  • Just ring door on the left and a great lady opens the Church and explanations that meet. It is a place of refreshment and stop for pilgrims on the via Francigena
