Magnificent Medieval Prayer place away from the city context. I do Not dwell on the cultural aspects, consultable on the internet, but explicit my thoughts on the environment that welcomes the tourist. The Abbey is set in the greenery, near a large farmhouse.

You can take pictures anywhere, but without the use of the flash. The whole thing is well cared for and clean. In the back of the abbey there is a garden with the cultivation of trees of ancient quality of apples, cultivated by the University of Turin.
