Time.....slows.....down.....just as you enter the Abbey. Well preserved. Well maintained. A place of reverence, serenity and history. Worth the visit, just to walk the grounds and enter into the courtyard and chapel.

Big abbey (mostly close to the general public) on a promontory in the northernmost part of Lake Como. Great views, beautiful but largely impenetrable woods, peace and a nice old church and cloister. It can be reached by boat or by car and if you...More
