Ancient Cistercian abbey, owned by Camilla Salvago Raggi, the writer, the last descendant of the ancient house, who has the desire to be entrusted to the Cistercian order, which dealt with it until a few years ago. Lovely place because nestled in a valley with beautiful woods and huge green meadows kept very well, arrived at the abbey Mr Fiorenzo is available to the most interested to explain with competence and passion the history of the abbey and sell various related products.... We also made a ring, about 5km that starts from the abbey and runs through groves, along streams and very interesting bridges... Nearby restaurants and farmhouses where you eat well...

Very quaint place and in the middle of nature. There is so much peace and a lot of greenery. Beautiful old building. I recommend you for a little outing.
