The chiostro and the garden almost force contemplation .....surely the intention of the builders . Surrounded by lemons, oranges and mandarins still hanging on the trees, listening to the birds it is easy to feel time stops here.

The main church of this monastery is located on the street, but if you take the gate closer to the san lorenzo, you end up in the courtyard of the monastery. From here you can see the lovely statue and the upper part of the...More

Sumptuous decoration for Baroque aficionados. Fits in nicely with the street outside known as Christmas alley where everything you will ever need, or can possibly think of, for your Christmas crib is available.
