This wonderfully white abbey stands out as it is perched on the hill overlooking Cassino. The hairpin turns before you reach the abbey give you the feeling of ascending to the heavens and detaching yourself from earthly woes. Once you arrive at the top it is a confirmation that it is indeed heaven on earth. This is a place where you forget everything and you immerse yourself in the silence and in the spirituality of St. Benedict. The architecture envelops you, and after climbing the staircase accesses the Cloister of the Benefactors, you cannot resist turning around. That’s where the enchantment begins.
This space leaves an indelible mark on anyone who sees it because of its history throughout time. It is something everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime.
