  • Beautiful medieval complex whose origins can be traced back to the early years of the century. The order of the humiliati, XIII as fortified Grange in which they carried out farming and handicrafts, such as wool production and the production of felt. After the 1571, when the order was suppressed, the Abbey and the lands were given to Swiss boarding school, in turn suppressed in 1797 by Napoleon Bonaparte who donated them to the Ospedale Maggiore di Milano Ca ' Granda ", which is still the owner. In 2013, after years of neglect and various uses (in classrooms around the cloister I even followed some courses of SDA Bocconi), took over-in loan-the community of canons regular of Prémontré, order founded by Saint Norbert in the early 1100 and that follows the rule of Saint Augustine.

  • A beautiful village and Abbey, always part of the circuit of the road of the abbeys. The Interior looks bare (but maybe it was once frescoed!) except for the beautiful fresco on the apse with the assumption of Mary. To report a beautiful sixteenth-century painting returned to the Abbey in recent years. The atmosphere is impressive. The surrounding buildings of Grange in need of a revamp. Note the system fortified with towers that surrounds it.

  • Very wide inner court and the buildings surrounding it, vintage has unfortunately remained low, the rest held up well. Very simple Church, restored to what little original that it was possible to save after using "civil". Back the only monastic community from 2013.
