Great place

A beautiful place. Make sure you go everywhere in the buildings. It is serene, little gold and art, many nice details.

This retreat is so peaceful

So much is made of cathedrals and basilicas and the arts that they hold, and rightfully so. But a visit to a monastery leaves you with an understanding of religious retreats and their purpose to their faiths.

So much better than expected
paź 2016 • Pary
Have seen many a church/cathedral etc. in my time as they say but the largeness and simplicity of this abbey made me feel quite emotional. In fact I still do! Worth a walk round the grounds as well. I agree with all the top reviewers too.

Humble peaceful visit
paź 2015
This is my 4th? visit to the abbey in the last 30+ years and it gets better every time! I learn something new on each visit. On this visit I discovered that the block of granite off to a corner of the abbey is where apparently St Thomas Acquinas' donkey left 2 of it's hoof prints embedded in the block!
The renovations have been completed and what a great restoration. There is a section of the original floor inside the church which can be seen under a sheet of glass flooring. Shows you how it looked like and also the depth of where the original floor was.
For a peaceful reflective visit, this is the place to have it.

A church with a difference
wrz 2015
Visiting the Abbey at Fossanova was a delight. The abbey itself is beautiful, very simple and with minimal adornment, it is clearly a mun-loved place of worship and reflection. The chapel of St Thomas Aquinas is a must-see, and the surrounding buildings and courtyard are delightful. The associated museum is open on weekends and holidays which was disappointing as we were ther on Wednesday, but there is a nice little bar making locket coffee and snacks. Definitely worth a visit for anyone with an interest in religious and architectural history, but try timing your visit for the weekend.

Charming abbey and hamlet
sie 2015 • Znajomi
An impressive abbey with many interesting architectural features especially the individual columns surrounding the cloisters. The grounds are quite large and walking through the hamlet was a peaceful experience. We stopped for drinks under some shady trees at cafe where prices were reasonable. I was surprised to see that most of the shops were closed, even on a Saturday.
