Unique place to see

Being the oldest church in the area, i would definitely recommend a visit. Parts of this church were built in the year 900. The building is beautiful and so are the grounds.

Abbazia di Sant Antimo. A relaxing place to visit. Or better say, I must visit while in Montalcino. And if you not in a hurry, you can always stay for the service. The monks have services I think every hour or so. The service last for about 15 or 20 minutes, and is very relaxing just to hear the echoes... More

Only the church was open and it is very plain compared to the cathedrals in Siena and Florence. We did not arrive at the time the monks were chanting so might have enjoyed it more than we did. We spent 10 minutes there at most.

We went to a 9am Mass...not religious reasons but for the beauty of the light streaming through the big windows as the incense smoked the air. (see photos).

Well worth visiting this historic and beautiful church. Make sure you get a chance to hear their Gregorian chants which are so peaceful and spiritually satisfying. They have a website that you can visit to plan your stay accordingly (to time it with the Gregorian chants if you so choose). Wonderful and not time consuming visit. You will be happy... More

If you are in the area definitely try to get to this Abbey. You will not believe how long ago this Abbey was built.

It is a beautiful place, in the countryside, surrounded by olive trees, but I expected more of the gregorian chants.

Such a beautiful place. Listening to the Gregorian chants echo throughout the abbey gave me chills. The views of the abbey, with vineyards, olive trees, and a hilltop town nearby were stunning.
