Its a bit off the beaten path- but worth the stop. If you can get there when the monks are celebrating the Divine Office in Latin -- so worth it! We were surprised at the number of people there -- it was quite crowded -- its location is stunning and the old Abbey Church amazing!

We visited the property after visiting a nearby vineyard. The church itself is something to be seen because of the oldness of it. I've toured many churches throughout Italy but none built in the first century. The view from the church may be the best we have seen during our stay in Montalcino. I wouldn't go out of my way...

This is one of the oldest abbeys in Italy. Unfortunately we missed the choir time. Its simple architecture gives one a peaceful feeling.

We went to Sant'Antimo one of the days during our 5 day stay last week. The drive was beautiful, as it is very close to Val D'Orcia, and just 15 minutes from Montalcino. But the Abbey itself is a lot like any other church in Italy, not quite remarkable. We didn't spend too much time there. But I saw some... More

Different to many of the Duomo's and structure's about. The Abbey of Saint Antimo takes it's beauty in the simplicity of the interior, the exterior architecture is the pull of the building. Still Simple but stunning, well worth a visit!

Sant'Antimo abbey is one of Tuscany's most beautiful examples of Romanesque architecture and was one of the most powerful monasteries around Siena in the medieval ages. The works on the originally benedictine monastery started in 1118 and ended in 1260. There are marvellous engravings and grotesques in the walls and column heads.

Nice to stop if you are in the neighborhood. To enter you need to pay a ticket. We did nog. From the outside you have a nice view on de church and the typical italian cipress trees. Nearby is a restaurant.
