S. Maria di Cerrate

Interesting
This enchanting Benedictine abbey in a secluded country setting dates back to the 12C. A portico with beautifully carved capitals flanks the left-hand side of the church, which has preserved some of the frescoes that once decorated the entire surface. Others (including the splendid Annunciation) have been moved to the old Casa del Massaro.
