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.

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.
Beautiful historical place.. don't take a taxi ! they are con men. There is a bus service which is 1 euro each way.
Highly recommend seeing! One of the coolest places I’ve ever been to! Make sure you go through the whole area to not miss anything!
