This ancient religious settlement, lies on the route of a road that links the Abbey of Nonantola to Tuscany.
Between the 9th and 13th centuries, the Abbey was home to a community of Benedictine monks and also served as a place of shelter for travellers.
The core group of buildings served both a civil function (tower of ‘500) and a religious function (church, monastery and cloister).
The architectural structure of the church is reminiscent of the Romanesque style, dating its origin to the 12th or 13th century and numerous decorative elements from late ancient times have been reused in its construction.
