Wonderful, surrounded by nature you are taken back a thousand years with a view of the Concarena, truly beautiful!

I went to the monastery to visit it in the afternoon but unfortunately it is only open in the morning. The three stars are because the visit should also be in the afternoon but the simple view from below of the three Romanesque apses with semi-columns is equally worth a few more kilometers even in the afternoon and for that I would have put *****. I'll have to go back. That domage!

Thanks to the Pro loco and with the arguments of a young local and well prepared guide we visited the monastery. The monastery stands on the opposite side of the Pieve di San Siro and was a Clunicense priory. The square stone building is surrounded by a pleasant garden with a charming rose garden. The interior of the church has three naves covered by cross vaults. Of particular interest are the massive columns of the naves and decorated with medieval engravings such as eagles, sirens and others.

Odeon of Herodes Atticus

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus is a stone theatre structure located on the southwest slope of the Acropolis of Athens. It was built in 161 AD by the Athenian magnate Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla. It was originally a steep-sloped theater with a three-story stone front wall and a wooden roof made of expensive cedar of Lebanon timber. It was used as a venue for music concerts with a capacity of 5,000. It lasted intact until it was destroyed and left in ruins by the Heruli in 267 AD.

The audience stands and the orchestra (stage) were restored using Pentelic marble in the 1950s. Since then it has been the main venue of the Athens Festival, which runs from May through October each year, featuring a variety of acclaimed Greek as well as International performances.
