Abbazia delle Tre Fontane reviews

This is a very quiet and peaceful abbey, located on the outskirts of Rome. It may be relatively inconvenient to get here (nearest Metro station is Laurentina). However, it is a good place for prayer and reflection. Enjoy the walk in from the main road, where you will be met with a large statue of St. Benedict. There are three churches within this complex and I wished I had half a day to spend here. Don't forget to drop by the shop near the entrance, where you can buy good beer, chocolate and oil made by the monks.
I really love this place because it has the power to make you go back in time when the trappist monks used to live here and took care about this ancient location where St.Paul was killed. Today you can go to the different churches and have a rest eating and drinking the products made following the old trapist recipes. I have to say that if you are christian or you love beer and chocolate this is the place to visit just for an hour or 2.
