What can I say about this abbey? Magnificent Cotentin abbey in a rural setting conducive to inner rest. Ideal for revising your competitions!!! Once again a big thank you for the welcome of the monks and the exquisite cuisine of Brother Pierre!

Mass at the abbey on this feast of the assumption with collective prayer led by the monks. On site, after a visit to the La Trappe shop, tasting of its fine and tasty charcuterie products; she deserves a gold medal at the annual Grand Concours Agricole in Paris!

Beautiful place very peaceful. Too bad the store is only open on weekends. We could not taste the products made by the monks.

Santa Maria in Trastevere

The Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere is one of the oldest churches of Rome. The basic floor plan and wall structure of the church date back to the 340s, and much of the structure to 1140-43. The first sanctuary was built in 221 and 227 by Pope Callixtus I and later completed by Pope Julius I. 

The inscription on the episcopal throne states that this is the first church in Rome dedicated to Mary, mother of Jesus, although some claim that privilege belongs to the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. A Christian house-church was founded here about 220 by Pope Saint Callixtus I (217-222) on the site of the Taberna meritoria, a refuge for retired soldiers. The area was made available for Christian use by Emperor Alexander Severus when he settled a dispute between the Christians and tavern-keepers.

The church underwent two restorations in the fifth and eighth centuries and in 1140-43 it was re-erected on its old foundations under Pope Innocent II.
