Amazing frescoes! This is a small monastery, and to see the internal church you should ring the bell, one of the nuns will open the door and let you in, guiding to the frescoes. A real hidden gem!

Went here half an hour before the 5:30 vespers. Shown around the chapel and the beautiful frescos. There are workmen there carrying out very noisy work! Yes we rang the bell to go into the chapel. We then went to the church to hear the nuns chanting. Sadly only 12 Benedictine nuns now. Humbling.

As others have said check the website to confirm the hours the monastery is open. We rang the bell on the door to the right as you enter (see attached Pic). When they ask you what you want - say you want to see the chapel - they buzz the door and you can then open it. A very gracious Benedictine nun showed us around. She spoke in Italian - but since we have a Christian background we could generally make out what she was saying when she showed us around. No pictures were allowed - but we bought a postcard at the end and made a donation. Nice experience.

We were bowled over by the wonderful frescoes, reminiscent of Giotto. We were lucky enough to have one of the sisters in the convent, a Benedictine nun, explain the images - it was magical.

we visited at the end of the day and were quite frustrated by the feeble light (some of the magnificent frescoes were hard to admire as the sun was setting and the nun would not light the frescoes despite our demands). We were the 2 of us and the nun who had us visit the chapel. The nun herself is an experience in her own capacity, she whispered some inaudible French we tried to understand, but was a nice person per se. The frescoes are of excellent quality just choose 12H or good sun conditions as seing them in half obscurity was a pain in the neck...
