Shown around by a nun who loved the place and wanted to share it. You can’t just wander in. They sell sweets as well that they make on site. It is possible to stay in the convent.

The atmosphere that is created in the summer evenings is that of an elegant and charming, thanks to a lighting that enhances the park and the structure of this prestigious period residence.

Ancient Roman church, in the harmonious simplicity of its structure and of its interior, which exacerbate the mystical character, fits perfectly with the places and the buildings that surround it, and is topped by a bell tower and an imposing Romanesque tower dating to 1282.
