The Monastery

Some of the lessons take place inside the monastery of Madonna del Monte.
The sanctuary of the Madonna Santissima del Monte, with its monastery, is situated at the doors of Marta, on the slope of the hill which overlooks the town and the lake of Bolsena. Every 14 th of May, the city hosts one of the most characteristic processions of the region and central Italy :
The festival of Madonna del Monte

The monastery was occupied by Benedictine monks who honour the image of the Virgin Mary visibly to this day. It is now a part of the parish of Marta.
