  • The entry of the Benedictine Abbey of San Nazario e Celso is a bit hidden, but I recommend trying the door located on the right as you enter the magnificent kiosk. For husbands who do not resist very Vicolungo Outlet, can please your eyes coming on this awesome place very close.

  • If you have an effort to reconstruct the life of a hundred years ago, let alone get an impression of how things were in and around the year 1000. In our area there are traces such as the Church of Naula of Serravalle Sesia (Vc), in s. Martino di Breclema in Romagnano Sesia (No) and always in the novarese in the Benedictine Abbey of Saints Nazarius and Celsus. The latter gives us the image of a Benedictine community dedicated to observe the golden rule of ora et labora wanted by St. Benedict, whose life is summed up in the frescoes and some moralizing discourse still partially visible in the cloister of the Abbey. But the complex of San Nazzaro also raises the idea of insecure and dangerous times, being a fortified monastery within the walls, the community wanted to defend their lives and possessions; It is not for nothing that the Bell Tower was a point of sight on the surrounding countryside, which I guess-a weather had baraggia and not paddy. The Church is silent and has perfect lighting for prayer and meditation and among other features in the left wall a very vivid fresco of Saints which the Abbey is dedicated to Saint Catherine. The place was an ancient Roman settlement, witness for example the lid of a sarcophagus in the cloister and two sepulchral slabs of recovery located at the base of the tower. The overall impression is not that of a Museum, but a community whose initiatives continues to live and speak to visitors; wonder-or in hindsight is hardly surprising-a sign of the cloister where we inform that the Abbey thrives on offer; We were in other countries s. Nazzaro would be a national glory, from us the goal is minimal. In short, it is a piece of Italy "minor" only compared to the major centers, but worth seeing, as well as all appreciated the context made of silence, rice fields, the Alps in the background and other countries. A curiosity: in the guide of the province of Novara is made by printing from a well-known publishing houses in 1993, in 1891 and made Turin reprint in paragraph dedicated to San Nazzaro reads a Gothic Parish Church stands near the town square, but not it comes despite the glorious history of the Abbey.

  • The Abbey is an integral part of the country. Dismembered in the Napoleonic era is open to visitors in his finest buildings, the Church and the cloister. A crenellated wall with remains of towers surrounding a high tower with a square base (with a weird distribution of Windows), the Church that has curosamente the façade behind a sort of extension of the side aisles, a lovely Cloister. In the cloister remain interesting frescoes illustrating the life of St Benedict, date back to the 15th century and are accompanied by a written in Italian, uncommon par at the time. The Church, frescoes, a few simple but beautiful; questionable design of brick columns. Currently share the use of the premises three priests, pastors in the countries of the area. The place is beautiful in itself, but a few things make it special: the excellent state of preservation, care and cleaning, hospitality. Eg. There is a ticket to pay, only discreetly is invited to contribute; There are publications, which visitors can freely take, with only a note indicating its MSRP, the same access to the sites is entirely free with only provide us recommendation as to remember to lock the door. How to tell a civil place for sensible people.
