San Nazzaro Sesia

Well, the previous walls are the defence of this marvellous fortified Abbey.

Established during the XI century on an ancient Benedictine monastery, the San Nazzaro Sesia Abbey was rebuilt and fortified during the XV century by Barbavara Abbot.


Behind the sacred building the bell tower.

Bene, le mura precedenti sono la difesa di questa meravigliosa Abbazia fortificata.
Fondata nel XI secolo su un antico monastero Benedettino, l’Abbazia di San Nazzaro Sesia fu ricostruita e fortificata nel XV secolo dall’Abate Barbavara.
Dietro all’edificio sacro la torre campanaria.

Ancient buildings are a fascination to those of us who come from countries that are much "younger" than yours.
