The church itself is just a part of the old town area, which is very popular with Italian locals who want some time outside. without traveling very far. It was my local Italian friend's first visit, as he was curious about the area.

About 40 minutes from Milano, you find an amazing abbey in a small lovely village. Lombardy has beautiful locations too but it's much more difficult to find them...

A journey in the past

The Abbey has an interesting and well preserved architecture. Its location on a small hill on the plain where the Ticino river flows and the context of a medioeval neighborhood makes it particularly fascinating and evocative of a far from today life time.

Feel the breath of centuries

We visited the cloisters and some exhibition of stories from the archives during a busy festival. The place is so nice and pleasant, and well kept, and volunteer staff so kind and serious that you happily accept overpriced herbal tea from a standard, if good, global supplier as part of an "archeogastronomy" experience alongside mead, spices and preserves from more or less local manufacturers, that never set foot anywhere near the abbey's pharmacy or officinal orchards. They never pretended to, they just remind you of it!

What really amazes is the glimpse and feeling into when this corner of florid countryside was wilderness being tamed and harnessed with monks' know-how and peoples' hard work.

Greensleeves
Feb 2015
When we went it was cold, in fact it was snowing, but the building is beautiful and has that old world charm about it. Only downside despite the fact that we could only see part of the outside of it. Was the fact that we were subjected to Greensleeves on the bells at 5am.

We stayed in the hotel directly opposite it. Wasn't a bad thing just a little irritating at 5am

The basilica is rich with tiny treasures if you are lucky enough to find it open. Fortunately the XII century bricks structure has not been altered in the ages, it has some Gothic influence, its shape hasn't got the sweet Romanic style one would expect in that particular age.

After having visited la Certosa di Pavia, even though I was quite disappointed because of the bad state, this abbey didn't transfer much to me.
First of all on the contrary of la Certosa di Pavia, there is an entrance fee, good for the abbey maintenance.
Very small abbey, but it worth a visit.
The location is magnificent, peaceful Italian spot.

Italy as known from dolce vita

The abbey is located on the banks of a small river. The town itself is small, but full of character. There are big parking lots (prepared for season based religious travelers), 2 restaurants and a neat hotel. The abbey is well kept. It is for sure a good stop for a few hours on the way from Milan to any southern place of interest.
