San Nazzaro Sesia

It is a question of one of the most meaningful Abbey complexes of northern Italy.
It rises in the midst of rice fields. Founded in the 11th century in an ancient Benedictine monastery, redone in the 12th century and nearly completely reconstructed and fortified in the 15th century.
It holds an atrium arranged on two floors and a Roman bell tower. The church was reconstructed in the 15th century and in Gothic style. The façade is richly decorated with terra cotta frames. The cloister, from the 1400s, is decorated with brick friezes and holds an interesting cycle of late fifteenth-century frescoes which represent episodes of the live of San Benedetto.
