Visit Boscodon

Boscodon Abbey

Set in a beautiful landscape surrounded by mountains, 1,150m above sea level, the abbey of Boscodon is a remarkable 12th century monument, a masterpiece
of monastic religious art, with a pure Romanesque style reminiscent of primitive Cistercian art. Today the abbey is inhabited by a community of monks and nuns
who manage the site and open its doors to the public.
