  • There is an organization in the visits but go there and there is an Indian monk who tells you a bit about the history and basically leave an offer. The most interesting thing that is the fresco would need more in depth. CMQ to visit because it remains a charming place.

  • One of the hallmarks of Tuscan art is the presence (both in Florence and throughout the province) of countless "cenacles", where there is always the presence of those great works that represent the last supper. One of the most active in the late fourteen hundred, it was definitely Domenico Ghirlandaio that left three important evidence: the last supper by Passignano, all saints and San Marco ones (the latter in Florence). The last supper was painted in 1476 by Domenico Passignano with brother David: the result is very interesting and marks a turning point for the technique and the setting, this type of pictorial representations; restorations (the last executed a couple of years ago) I have removed the original beauty, but rather allow a greater enjoyment. Unfortunately the sala del Cenacolo would need some polishing and restoration. For art lovers, Badia a Passignano still represents a significant step.

  • A beautiful village with great visual impact is coming from Sambuca Val di Pesa (more comfortable) that coming down the other side. For me, one of the most characteristic quadrangular apse in Tuscany. Beautiful the Abbey

  • Interesting place
  • The Abbey seems almost like a castle and dominates a hill that can be seen from the road: it has the form of a monastic complex fortified with towers at the corners, which was later enlarged with the addition of a cloister and a wall. The current appearance dates back to the 19th century restorations, when the Abbey was privately owned, but overall there are also original elements of the 13th century. The gateway to the monastery, which is now occupied by a small community of vallombrosani monks and which can be visited on request on Sunday afternoon when one of the monks is available as a guide, is located in front of the Church. The front door in 15th century stone you enter into a small square with two towers. The refectory, the kitchen and the rooms are overlooking the cloister and within the Abbey there is a library with scrolls and books. Very nice is also the Abbey of San Michele Arcangelo. Outside the walls of the Abbey is the small village of Passignano with a 12th century tower house and the Church of San Biagio, which inside school frescoes by Ghirlandaio. You don't know what to do on a Sunday afternoon and don't feel like going to Ikea? Come and take a walk to Badia a Passignano and you won't be disappointed.

  • Beautiful monastery in the hills of Chianti that stands out as a rare gem. Full of history and art, which existed since the 9th century.
