Monastero Di S.Benedetto reviews
For two Benedictine oblates who are also Episcopal priests, this was a deeply moving experience. As a very small group of family and friends, we were granted an extremely generous tour of the Sacro... more »
Wonderful site to visit. The chapel, monastery, nature, all well worth to experience. A winding road up there but it pays back instantly. more »
If you are looking for 1 day excursion outside of Rome, this is a perfect place! Very calm and peaceful place. Amazing Frescoes inside. Be sure to get in with the guide as they will tell you the detailed history behind this place, frescoes and every corner of this monastery. They do Italian and English guided tour. There is no entrance fee or guide fee, but be sure to leave a donation at the end of the tour :) *Due to covid you have to enter with the guide and you cannot get in to the cave and touch St.Benedict foot. There is also a lovely souvenir shop outside.
The sacred caves of St Benedict is a very beautiful place where St Benedict is said to have spent 3 yrs of his life in meditation and prayer. The Monastery is built on the side of a rocky cliff and is a must visit if you are in Subiaco. You can drive to the entrance of the monastery and then a walk of around 100m gets you to the entrance. The guides were excellent, we had Francesca, who gave a detailed description of the history, the painting and the events depicted in the painting. You can leave a donation for the guides at the end of the tour. There is a nice little souvenir shop where you can buy religious objects as well as other things like candies and wines.
