We visited on a Sunday afternoon. The boat - only one service a day - gave us one hour there. The cloister was peaceful, and the church, and there is a grotto with some pilgrims. The souvenir shop has biscuits and another shop offers liqueurs....More

A very small and peaceful abbey near Colico that you find at the end of a long, narrow dirt road. It's a very calm place and a nice visit for about an hour.

The satnav we had on the car didn't recognize the abbey and sent us down two dead ends so I suggest you take care on how to get here. There are also a few km of driving down fairly narrow and twisty roads to arrive...More
