  • Contrary to popular belief, has never been a female monastery. And it was so important that the first Italian printing house opened right here. Certainly less flashy of "brother" St. Benedict, the monastery is an architectural composition at least as interesting, and beautiful frescoes. Accessed by guided tour (times are not very accurate, it seems that the tour starts when there is someone to visit the monastery), and the boy we found, though very young, was well prepared and made us appreciate the three cloisters of the monastery, the marvellous frescoes, the Bell Tower, the Church (unfortunately rebuilt in 1770 by Quarenghi, which in Italy has only done this). A place that deserves to be rediscovered.

  • This is the world's oldest Benedictine monastery where among other things he was tweaking the first printing technique. Just not getting visitors during religious celebrations but however it happens sometimes that the inputs are closed suddenly even when they should be allowed. In any case, instruct the guides.

  • A wonderful place that everyone should see. Great mysticism, a free guide, local products. Recommended all year. Parking is free of charge.
