  • The julyt facade of the church is of elegance, lightness and at the same time a solidity to be admired. For centuries inside it housed the guile of the Grancontessa, the energetic Matilda of Canossa. There is little to say about the abbey as a whole. It is one of the most important Benedictine-inspired specimens of the peninsula or better yet in Europe. If you add that in his cells, in his cloisters, in his refectory and along his corridors teeholter for years Teofilo Folengo, you will understand how recommended a visit to the center of St. Benedict Po is.
