  • During the journey of St. Thomas, from Rome in Ortona, I visited by Pilgrim this place of culture, where the atmosphere is mystical. We understand why St. Benedict chose this place to begin a great work. Ora et Labora! We proceed on, not only in the physical, I started my pilgrimage.

  • We were at Subiaco on purpose to visit the monastery and did not disappoint, the place is well worth the trip. An awesome place, within the picturesque valley of the Aniene, fully painted by artists of the ' 300 umbro-Marche and it is amazing how they kept the colors. You do not pay the ticket, but only a free offer at the exit. The only drawback, the day of our visit there was a guided tour, which would have been very useful and certainly interesting.

  • An extraordinary place, not only for its geographical location, but also for the treasure of art (and faith) that embodies and represents. The Interior is completely covered with frescoes of excellent workmanship, ranging from the 8th century to the 16th, including a portrait of Saint Francis made when he was still alive (so much so that does not carry nor stigmata or Halo). If the people who visit then respected a ban on taking pictures inside, you might appreciate even better is the art that the quiet of the place. And maybe even the frescoes, not subjected to flames of flash, it would retain better.

  • A wonderful monastery, I highly recommend a visit. The frescoes, dating from the second half of the 1300, are beautifully preserved although along the centuries many visitors and devotees have engraved their names on the paintings (now of course is forbidden). Mainly affects the simplicity almost '' fairy tale '' with which were represented the human figures and that magical atmosphere and typical of Renaissance paintings moving pre.

  • The oldest rock in the world: thanks to Abbey St Benedict Benedictine monastic orders and that were born thanks to note the Benedictine rule. The world owes much to this place and especially to the great St. Benedict, the patron saint of Europe. Not just the Western world: back in ' 400 he understood the rules of constructive social, work sharing and the "ora et labora" will resonate at any angle a testament to how great the man if well led in his personal life, social and spiritual. You can admire frescoes of the Roman school, Marche and Tuscany, up students do Giotto frescoes in bas-relief and sometimes perfectly adapted to limestone cliffs of caves dug for this purpose. The pleasant Guest House will accommodate you in the middle of a nature reserve on the Valley flows the river Aniene. Not to be missed by the spiritual intensity of the place, for the architectural beauty, for ritovarvi in a real dimension of man.

  • A monastery perched in the mountains, with a Valley green and dotted with a river which makes the magnificent panorama. Add the historicity and the religious importance of the place: in fact, he retired to a hermit Saint Benedict, inside a cave, from which was born the monastery in the 7th century. A place of worship that consists of a lower and an upper Church, both richly frescoed, with walls completely covered with paintings. And then the small garden, the Holy stairs ...
