Fodor's Expert Review Abbazia di Sant'Antimo

Abbazia di Sant'Antimo Free Fodor's Choice

The exterior and interior sculpture of this Romanesque abbey, dating from the 12th-century, is outstanding, particularly the nave capitals, a combination of French, Lombard, and even Spanish influences. The sacristy (seldom open) forms part of the primitive Carolingian church (founded in AD 781), its entrance flanked by 9th-century pilasters. The small vaulted crypt dates from the same period.
