Monte Oliveto Maggiore abbey: wonderful peace, and prayer oasis of Monaci Benedettini Olivetani who with their majestic bulk soars high over clay furrows and deep valleys.
It was founded by the blessed Bernardo (Giovanni Tolomei ). In 1313, the hermits came here. Adjacent to the church is the Big cloister with frescos by Signorelli and by Sodoma Sant’ Antimo Abbey that is an important monument of romanesque Art. It was founded by Carlo Magno at the end of VIII century. It was an important benedictine abbey. The building was helped by the donations by the Carolingians, by Berengario II, by Adalberto and by papal prerogatives.
