Overview
More
There is a place, right in the heart of the Po Valley, far away from the traditional tourist routes, a small town about ten km from Modena, which holds great treasures; its name is Nonantola. An unusual journey that expresses the beauty of a little known land, able to portray the ancient architecture and transmit sets of emotions with its historic buildings, its abbey, its museum and its ancient villas. Nonantola was established as a Roman colony and it jealously still preserves its signs. A destination that owes its fame to the Middle Ages, and that’s deeply linked to the Benedictine monastery of St. Sylvester, founded in 752 A.D. from the Lombard Anselm.

We were lucky in being able to visit the abbey right before it closed for restoration, after the damages it suffered from the earthquake in 2012. The church went through a courageous restoration in the early 1900s, which stripped out all the baroque additions from...More

In the year one thousand was built this church one of the most important Benedictine monasteries in Europe. The beautiful church and the beautiful garden on the rear aisles are worth a trip to the medieval town of Nonantola. The fortified tower houses an interesting...More
