A preview of the guide:
An oasis of peace where the work of the monks of the last one thousand years together with the art and the surrounding countryside combine to make the area incredibly rich of color and full of farming activity; the only negative aspect is that it is unfortunately very close to one of the city dumps.
We are talking about the Chiaravalle Abbey, a dominion of the Cistercian monks from the year 1135, the year in which San Bernardo founded his first church together with a small group of French monks.
