A great place to just go for a stroll with the children and dog(s) have a coffee and visit the old buildings, see the deer and other animals, just chill out

Not so long ago, it was possible to come here to get away for a while from the noise and cars and hectic commerce of the town. If it was open - which wasn't always - one could wander silently in the cloisters and monastery grounds, most probably in complete solitude, re-charging one's spiritual batteries and meditating on the beauty of creation. On the other side of the road was a hut selling monastic produce, honey, 90% proof "imperial drops" and the like. That was all.

It's changed. Nowadays, the whole area round the monastery has become something like a theme park, with shops, restaurants, a congress centre, bars, ice-cream places, a spaghettata of asphalt driveways, 'one-way' and 'no entry' signs, speed bumps, and an ocean of cars.

If you want to recharge your spiritual batteries you'd do better to stay in town.

This was a real finding during our tour in Marche due to Opera Festival in Macerata. The Abbey is really a special place with a perfect restoration of monastry parts and cellars. We enjoyed also the gardens of the close noble villa.

Abbazia di Fiastra is lots of things - an old abbey church with lots of interesting features that is well worth a visit. A huge park and nature preserve where you can walk or cycle and enjoy the countryside. Take a picnic, or eat at the very good cafe on site. You can do lots, or you you can do little - we just loved the atmosphere there - very restful.

We bought a combined at the archeo park for all of the sites around, we received a discount bcause the rocca was closed.

when we arrived at the abby the ward wantdd to know why we got discount a told us the other guy made a mistake. After a quit long discussion she let us in. A very unpleasant experience.

abbey itself is mediocre, but nice to see, nothing too exceptionnal.

Dear Mr. Borghmans Tom,

we are sincerely sorry for the misunderstanding. If you come back to our Abbey, it will be a pleasure for us to make a free guided tour of the rooms around the cloister.

Best regards,

Francesca Cola
