The Abbey of Casamari is built in the lonely site in the austere Cistercian style, according to the strict rules of austerity laid down by Saint Bernard, specifically designed to avoid distraction and ostentation. Regardless of of its austerity (or perhaps because of it), the Abbey is a gorgeous sight, with delicate slender columns, vaulted ceilings, small alabaster glass windows,... More

The monks here make their own digestive called Tintura Imperiale and it cures dodgy belly in a flash (you dilute a capful with water). They also sell other mainly locally made products (made at the cathedral and Rome). This place is also incredibly popular for tourists and newly weds for photo opps. A must-visit if u r in the area.

Interesting and peaceful visit to an abbey that characterises the simplistic life of the Cistercian monks from this abbey.

the trappist monks are in a lot of solitude, also there is a beautiful garden in the middle. Also one of the rooms have some beautiful stained windows. This gothic building is XI century and you are able to buy medicinal herbs, and they make a liquor and I actually bought some chestnut spread.

Having Italian family from this region, this church has a special significance to us, as my in-laws were married here 40 years ago. This was thier local church at that time, and during every trip back to Italy we marvel at the inherent beauty in the forms and structure of this medieval church. It's certainly much less decorated and much... More

I had been here as a teenager many years ago. I wanted to return to experience the peaceful setting and admire the Cistercian Abbey. Spend about an hour here at least. In the abbey shop you can buy products made by the monks themselves. I bought honey and an after dinner bitter (amaro) drink which I have found to be... More
