Staffarda Abbey

We went down to the Po Valley to see Staffarda Abbey, the local Cistercian monastery founded in 1135 by the Marquis of Saluzzo, in the middle of a farm, with a beautiful unspoilt cloister, leading to a grandly decorated, sparse, Romanesque church interior with painted brick decoration:-

These are the farm buildings, with views back up to the mountains:-
