Marienberg Abbey


by Snowdog

"Medieval Convent"

It is impossible not to notice the imposing structure of the Abbey of Monte Maria, when you are on the state road of the Alta Val Venosta that leads to Passo Resia, at the top of Burgusio. The convent was founded by the Counts of Tarasp around 1200. The monastic, Baroque church is the only example of a basilica with three, columned naves in the valley. There is a notable portal with a rounded arch from the thirteenth century, a sculpture of the Madonna with child from the fifteenth century and stucco frescoes. The crypt, built in 1156, has Romanesque frescoes with Byzantine influences. Guided visits only. Groups must book in advance. Check for varying opening dates.
