  • Hidden treasure, wonderful church and tower, impressive cloister in sadly neglected surroundings...with a delightful shop with a large variety of monastic food, cosmetic and Pharmaceuticals herb extracts

  • Amazing piece of Christian history dating back to 1135 in the Milan suburbs.

  • Remarkable abbey with outstanding artworks.

  • Bellissima Abbazia costruita nel 1135 in stile gotico/romano alle porte di Milano. Molto bello il chiostro con scorci del passato. Al suonare delle campane si può stare sotto il campanile all'interno per vedere l'abilità del frate nel tirare le funi. Visita all'antico mulino in orari stabiliti. Nel cortile vendita di oggetti sacri, souvenir e prodotti locali del frati. Da visitare!

  • Immersa nel verde e nella pace. Bel luogo in cui fare anche passeggiate. L'abbazia è antica e ben conservata. La chiesa ha varie nicchie con piccole cappelle, un crocifisso d'oro sospeso bellissimo e un organo immenso. Nel chiosco si può ammirare una ricostruzione fotografica della Chiesa, dell'ordine con le loro cerimonie principali e delle terre limitrofe con campagne, rete idrica e scoli. Il loro shop è economico.
