Visitor information

A Monastery tour will impart interesting information about the Augustinian Canons’ order, insights into the 875-year history of the Abbey, as well as a view of the Monastery Church, the gothic cloister, the rich art gallery / Pinacoteca, and the famous Library Hall. The historical and well-tended Abbey gardens with their arboretum, herb garden, and Baroque garden, an essential part of the Monastery, may be visited by participating in a garden tour.

Each tour takes about one hour.
