Once you go inside the Abbazia you will breath the atmosphere of ancient times. The building was edified in mid 1200 by Humiliated Monks who used to farm and wool weaving.
At that time the tower was built and this is the real symbol of the Abbazia. In 1200 too was also built the pretty little private church where bride and groom can celebrate their evocative and romantic wedding.
During centuries Abbazia had several owners that changed this convent in a luxury court with horses and dogs for hunting.
At the end of 1700 Abbazia was acquired by Giannone family who is still the actual owner. The Abbazia now is a wonderful venue for elegant country weddings.
