We decided to suggest our couples to get married in a old Abbey, what experience!! Magical atmosphere, romantic frame and amazing place for a typical Italian Wedding.
The Historical Abbey was built in the late eleventh century in the wake of the vast movement of spiritual renewal, which in Europe (according to the rule of St. Benedict) saw the emergence of numerous religious communities.
In the 1300s, twelve churches depended on it, with towers and battlements that had become a real center of power, power that became more political than spiritual leading a decline of the Abbey itself that was owned by families of the aristocracy. Towards the middle of the sixteenth century, the abbey was refurbished and the frescoes were realized, transforming the building into a sort of prince’s residence following the same destiny as other residences of the territory
Since 1921 the abbey was bought by the present owners, who through activities and cultural events are working every day with love to keep alive and preserve this place of peace, art, history and nature.
