We visited this beautiful, peaceful site with Costanza, a lovely lady of 88 who keeps the keys. It is a short drive from Rosciolo and she guided us there in our car. The Abbey is very small as befits it's rural setting, but has been miraculously preserved intact. With an altar, rood screen and pulpit sculpted in warm pinkish yellow stone, and large intact frescos dating to the 11th and 12th centuries, it would be mobbed with tourists if it were in Rome or Florence and we met only one other couple during an hour there. An ancient stone gateway marks where pilgrims and crusaders arrived from far away countries on the road to the Holy Land. This tiny former Benedictine Monastery with surrounding fields owned by the church still welcomes pilgrims in a small refuge with a loft dormitory.
