Stunning Abbey is located in San Benedetto po date back to the year 1000 in fact you will find remains that the church has been built and expanded several times, in fact you can find Roman columns and mosaics dating back to various eras a true jewel of Benedictine abbey to visit with calm given its vastness. The various artists who worked there from the famous Giulio Romano,Antonio Bagarelli and Paolo Veronese, mark the religious and artistic history of the abbey admirable until the arrival of Napoleon Goodparte that ends the life of the monastery in the 1797...La basilica of Julius Romano made from 1540 at the end of 1547 a favorite pupil of Raphael created a symposium of architecture, sculpture, painting, and furniture that create a path in which art covers the truth of faith with admirable forms...
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.
