Pomposa Abbey

The famous Benedictine monastery dating back to the Middle Ages

Pomposa Abbey is a complex of buildings that constitute one of the most illustrious Benedictine monasteries of the Middle Ages. The Basilica, the Refectory, the Chapter House and the Court are the most important part of the abbey. To these was added, in a later period, the majestic bell tower.

The abbey was founded by Benedictine monks in the 7th century AD.
In the following centuries the abbey took on prestige thanks also to the role of abbot.
The Benedictines stayed here until the beginning of the 16th century. The complex then became private property and then an agricultural company, until a century ago it was transformed by the State into a national monument.

The Abbey was a destination for illustrious people throughout history; among the most famous, we remember Dante Alighieri and Barbarossa.

The architectural style of the Abbey is very peculiar and boasts both Romanesque and Byzantine style details.
