We had a personal tour by one of the few remaining monks. It is a spectacular place. It has a small museum, caves excavated into the mountainside, and a beautiful church with a spectacular pipe organ. It’s not easy to get there, but it is...More

Visiting this abbey is a very typical experience. You have the feeling you visit an abbey where time has stood stil. Not since the middel ages but since beginning of the 20th century. That experience makes the visit unique. Unfortunately, large parts are not open...More

If possible try to schedule a tour of the interesting marble interior but especially down in the crypt where the original church was and the collection of manuscripts renown throughout Europe.

We were also staying at the Hotel Scapolatiello and had time to walk through the village to the church. Beautiful historical property if you can arrange a tour do it the moment one steps in side of the church the scent is of polished wood.

We were staying in Hotel Scapolatiello, an extraordinary hotel in the narrow streets of Cava de Tirreni. We heard the bells of the Angelus and also at other times the bells rang out, and on enquiry we realised that there was a Benedictine Abbey almost...More

This is a most beautiful mediaeval monastery which still houses about ten working monks. The architecture of the building is astounding - it is actually built into cliff and incorporates the cliff face. The guided tour is worth taking, showing the beautiful library and the...More
