  • Its origins date back nearly a thousand years ago in the era of Canossa (Maud was buried in it until it was transported to Rome by St. Peter in ' 600). In the ' 500, the Church was rebuilt by Giulio Romano who masterfully did live with Romanesque and Gothic styles with Renaissance elements. Large, spacious, solemn and full of interesting artistic elements. Besides the Church is to visit the entire Abbey complex with three magnificent cloisters.

  • An ensemble of monuments of great artistic value whose origins date back to the 11th-12th century, which was followed by a series of expansions, renovations, renovations and culls. Thanks to local volunteers the visit takes on a particular value from a spiritual point of view as well as art history. Very nice old cellar with its collection of old country carts used by farmers who worked the land of the monks.
