Monte Cassino, Cassino

Built on the site of a sixth-century monastery, Monte Cassino was designed by some of southeastern Europe's finest artists before its papal consecration in 1041. The abbey has been restored since its destruction in 1944 during the Battle of Monte Cassino. View relics, mosaics, manuscripts, and other artifacts as you wander the hallways and courtyards. The hike to the monastery, which is on a 520 m (1,706 ft) high hill, is extremely steep. Plan to take public transportation to the top. Check online for details about religious services and special events. Using our world travel planner, Cassino attractions like Monte Cassino can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • It dominates the valley but its greatness is only discovered when you get to the top. Perfectly reconstructed with very well-groomed details. Only flaw: lack of a minimum place of refreshment (but perhaps it is a choice to avoid confusion and dirt)

  • I embarked on this journey on the recommendation of my wife, who wanted to do it on foot and we traced the road from Norcia to Monte Cassino in reverse and in the car between wonderful natural scenery with the golden colors of Autumn and many curves. The departure was therefore the white splendor of the Abbey destroyed and rebuilt 4 times in 1500 years and the three war cemeteries that in a sense surround it. Beauty, peace and meditation.
