We visited Torri and the cloister on a stay just up the road at a rental cottage. The town of Torri is picturesque with narrow cobblestone streets. the Abbey cloister is hidden away but worth the trip to see the two story structure and grounds....More

Stunning cloisters, a must see, and a great local restaurant just down the hill. Both are hidden gems. Cloisters are only open on a Monday and Thursday am.

Really one of the most beautiful cloisters I have seen - the lowest colannade dates from the 12th century with fascinating biblical and fantastical images on the capitals. It is well maintained and well presented with pots of scarlet geraniums colourfully arranged around the cloister....More

Very interesting experience. Shame only opened so rarely and the church is opened only on Sunday. Definitely worth visiting.

Well worth a visit as the cloisters are surrounded by a picturesque village and beautiful scenery. No entry charge but check opening hours as in July there were only 2 sessions a week (Monday and Friday mornings) Information sheets are provided in various languages.

Well worth a visit - a peaceful and very sacred place - historical information is available in English on site. Only the first floor is open so the visit takes less than an hour.

We visited the Chiostro thanks to other TA reviews. We thought that there might be signs once we reached Torri, but no such luck and our GPS did not recognize the site. We drove down the road to Stiglione and were able to get pointed...More
