Peaceful experience

We were told about this place by friends of ours who live in Lombardy region. Parking place is not far away from the actual place. We were a bit surprised that Green Pass for Covid-19 vaccination was not checked because at all other places we visited on this trip, it was needed to show the confirmation.
The journey starts with downhill staircases. Wonderful view to the lake (it was sunny and warm day). Information for others: in case you have issues with walking uphill, consider to take elevator on the way back. It is quite steep.
Monastery itself is a peaceful place, it made us to really calm down. It's not big however you might lose sense of time when you're there.

Wow Factor!

You should consider visiting this destination if you are in the area - it is quite unique. Established in 1170, and first adopted as a monastery in 1230, there are four chapels and an incredible view of Lake Maggiore. You will descend 286 steps to reach the chapels. Should you desire, there is an elevator - I think for one euro. The views are breathtaking. Recommend.
