Guided tour of Subiaco
The guided tour of Subiaco that we offer includes the following visits: the Santa Scolastica and San Benedetto Monasteries. The first is one of the symbols of Subiaco, founded in 520 AD. and which was once called the monastery of San Silvestro. Today the monastery of Santa Scolastica is testimony of one of the oldest Benedictine monasteries in Italy and the world. The famous founder of the Benedictine monks’ order, San Benedetto, founded 13 monasteries in the Subiaco area. Santa Scolastica is probably the best known and bears the name of the sister of San Benedetto.
The other great monastery is the one that instead bears the name of St. Benedict himself: it rises in an area where, in the sixth century, the friar spent three years of his life as an hermit. The monastery visible today was built in the thirteenth century and is a place to visit absolutely when you go to Subiaco.
Other places of interest in Subiaco
In addition to the Benedictine monasteries, which represent a huge wealth of this territory, in Subiaco there is a wonderful historical center equipped with religious buildings that give an unmistakable charm to the landscape.
Also of great interest is the medieval village of Opifici, home to the ancient workshops of artisans until a few years ago. Subiaco also offers a considerable number of places of great naturalistic interest with an evocative view of the Simbruini mountains; and with a series of woods, forests and ponds in which to enter in perfect harmony with nature.
