The Museum Religious Art of the Abbey Vallombrosa (Reggello)

Just 24,4 km from here…

The monastery of Santa Maria at Vallombrosa in Reggello, the Mother House of this Congregation, rises on the site of the first small chapel built in around the mid 11th century by its founder St. John Gualberto for the small group of monks who had followed him into hermitage. The imposing monastic buildings of today date mainly from the 15th and 17th centuries, with the exception of the 12th century bell tower. The interior of the church is instead decorated in late 18th century Baroque style.
