  • This Abbey is still used for special occasions by the local townspeople but no longer has a resident priest. It was home to an order of Nuns up until as recently as 2006. It's most interesting features are it's architecture and more specifically the Roman architecture that is still visible. Again this isn't a disabled friendly location with small stairwells and tight spaces in several areas. The overall condition of the Abbey is excellent.
  • Lovely Abbey, nicely restored in a beautiful pittoresque village.
