Full description
In the heart of Ciociaria, south of Rome, stands one of the most famous abbeys in the world that owes so much of its fame, in addition to the beauty that distinguishes it, also to the history that saw it protagonist during the middle of the last century. A history of destruction and recovery, a history that has brought back to its maximum splendor what is the first monastery founded by Saint Benedict, the place where his famous Benedictine Rule was implemented for the first time. Even today, tens of thousands of travelers reach this abbey perched on a hill surrounded by greenery and cross its spaces, the beautiful cloisters, to breathe peace and beauty and admire frescoes and mosaics of enormous value. In fact, there are many treasures kept inside as well as in the museum that exhibits historical manuscripts and paintings of the highest value. During your visit you will also have the opportunity to experience a piece of history of the twentieth century, because this land full of faith and devotion was the victim of an allied bombing that during the Second World War was intended to break through the German defensive line - Gustav Line- but that besides costing the lives of thousands of soldiers, still buried in the nearby military cemeteries, destroyed much of the monastic complex. Fortunately, as we can see with our eyes, the post-war reconstruction has managed to bring this place full of charm to its ancient splendor and return us all the magic of an ancient monastery that still has much to tell.
