The abbey is just few miles off Saluzzo (a beautiful medieval town which you should not miss!). Take the road that from Saluzzo goes to Revello. The journey to go there is already breathtaking: you drive surrounded by the magnificent Alps and guarded by il...More

I have never seen anything quite like this. The abbey buildings surround a peaceful garden inside cloisters. You can visit the refectory,the work room and the chapter house. Then there is a fantastic austere but beautiful church. I highly recommend the audio guide which is...More

If you are in Piedmont, I recommend a trip to Saluzzo. It is a very pretty town with lots of historical buildings to see. There is a bit of a climb to get to some of the places, such as the lovely San Giovanni church,...More

We have been to a lot of castles, churches and abbeys. This one is not a favourite. The road (from Torino) to it is dreary (we saw several hookers waiting by small farmer roads) and the abbey itself is not very glorious. Dark, sober (arcades...More
