This was the perfect place to walk around and reflect. We had a beautiful (curvy, hilly) drive to get to it and then truly loved walking around the property. So many beautiful buildings and the water running through it is fabulous. I'm not sure how old it is but it is in wonderful shape.

Amazing sanctuary within nature. Beautiful spot in the hillside with a graceful waterfall and lush greenery. If you want a spot you get away and meditate this is it. We walked there one day about an hour walk from Cortona lower gate and drove another.

The monastery is located approximately 4 kilometres on the western side of the old town of Cortona, down a narrow road past the car parking areas located outside of the city walls. Once at the monastery there is a car parking area then you have to walk about 500 metres downhill and across a stone bridge across a river before... More

An absolutely stunning surprise. You can fell the serenity immediately. A beautiful soulful experience. Take a picnic lunch there is an area at the entrance with toilet facilities. Just out of Cortona. Take a leisurely stroll & relish the peacefulness.

A relatively easy one hour walk from Cortona to fabulous historical abbey and views. Worth the walk. Enjoy,

Truly a religious experience. Not to be missed. Driving up through narrow roller coaster roads requires a fearless driver. Not too much parking available.Small car is a plus.I suggest going very early in the morning in order to get parking.We were there on a Sunday and also had problems on the way down getting parking in Cortona.

My husband and I left Cortona through the North door, for a 1 hour walk to La Celle. Beautiful, peaceful, blessed place. Ideal to meditate and refocus. Walking back we decided to take a left on the road to Torreon, had a macchiato and walk back past the public garden to piazza Garibaldi. Spectacular walk!

With our daughter and son in law, who have lived nearby for over 6 years, we made a first visit. The day was beautiful and this place is so peaceful and appealing. There were a good number of tourists but they spread over a large area. The gardens are a delight and walking the paths around and viewing the buildings... More

For a calm, beautiful visit with a spiritual experience, visit and speak with the friars. Ring the bell and they will come
