This monastery was created in 614 so 1407 years ago, can you imagine this land so far in time ?
During medieval period this monastery was one of most important in Europe and was the center of the new city growing centuries after centuries.
The church was built in 1522 over the ancient church and built in Roman style, the facade has a beautiful portico and a statue of Saint Colombano over the top.

Visiting the abbey was the final and most moving part of our incredible journey over the past few weeks. We travelled from Dublin to Cleenish Island on Upper Lough Erne where St Columbanus started his spiritual journey. We went on to Bangor, Anse Du Guesclin and Saint-Coulombe in Britanny, Paris, Annegray, Luxeuil les Bains, Fontaine des Luxeuil, Besançon, Nantes, Baden in Switzerland and then Tuggen, Arbon to Bregenz and onto St Gallen. We crossed the Alps into Italy and arrived at this very special Abbey, the resting place of a dedicated and by this time, old Irish monk who was a true "European"! We travelled by plane, train, boat, bus and car. How did St Columbanus, St Gall, St Killian and all the others manage their considerably journeys 1,400 years ago without Ryanair, SNCF, SBB, OBB, Trenitalia and Europcar? Truly amazing people indeed. Bobbio is a lovely small city and as well as this very important abbey, there is a athedral and other fine churches. Bars, restaurants and ice cream shops make great attractions in themselves and everywhere is only a short walk away.

We were highly impressed by the significance of the abbey (6th century!) in the early Middle Age and by the mosaic in the crypt where the Irish missionary Colomban is buried.

In this ancient Abbey lies the remains of St Columbanus who 1400yrs ago put Bobbio on the map as he and his monks settled there and built their monastery. The whole of Bobbio speaks of St Columbanus and it is only right that a visit be made to the Abbey while visiting this beautiful city. It is a must visit.

Here in Bobbio rests S:t Columba (in Italian San Colombano) who was responsible for bringing Christianity to Ireland, in a magnificent tomb. A nice and tranquil place which was also cool on this warm (+32) September day. I had no idea that he was entombed here as I thought he was buried in Ireland. Nice to to see it was so well kept-
