This is quite a large complex but I liked the little chapels best. My favourite was the beautiful and peaceful Opilione chapel, or Sanctuary of Prosdocimus (on the right, towards the back). You're not allowed to enter the chapel itself, but even so you can...More

This church is filled with wonderful paintings and other art works. The alter has beautiful carved choir stalls and the abbey courtyard is full of lovely gardens.
