When the weather is clement, the cloister entrance is an ideal place to make the most of this wonderful inner space. Indeed, the cloister provides a theatre-like setting for welcoming guests and events such as open-air markets, and evening concerts under the stars.
It dates back to 1866, affirmed by the sign written above the doorway. At the center of the colonnade lies a 17th century well, and lodged in the walls is a 1793 wine press, once used to make vin santo.
This monastic place is a haven of tranquility, and lends itself to cultural and enogastronomic events, when a wood-fire oven serves up excellent pizzas. It is ideally suitable for musical events, thanks to the good natural acoustics provided by the building.
