Montalcino, not only Brunello Wine

10/May/2016

Do you know Montalcino? Yes you do, but maybe only because you know the famous wine, the Brunello, this is the automatic association.

The Brunello wine is famous all over the world and many tourists go to visit Montalcino only because of that, but today I would like to point the attention to another aspect of Montalcino, the Abbey of Sant’Antimo.
This Romanic Abbey , located at 6 miles from the town in a spectacular landscape has been built in XI-XII century, using local travertine marble and onice stone which give a particular light.

In the Abbey live Benedictine Monks that are characterized by their white dress which is a symbol of their devotion to Maria.
The location is stunning, the Abbey is beautiful but what makes unique the visit is the daily practice of the monks who sing the Gregorian chants.
All info about the God Hymns and spiritual songs hours are on the web site www.antimo.it.
