Experiences

Unmissable experiences for the spirit. And not onlySome suggestions

Amongst the possible experiences in religious tourism that visitors may have during their sojourn in the Region, we would like to mention a few that might not be in a regular vacation plan.

Do not miss the opportunity to live these unique experiences. Religious tourism is much more than mere spiritual meditation, it means to know and see firsthand the lifestyle of monks who still dwell in monasteries as well.

Read our suggestions and enjoy a different kind of tourism in Lombardy, a land that will welcome you into its convents.

Back in the Middle Ages, it was customary for clergy to host travelers. Nowadays this tradition lives on by opening the gates of some hermitages to provide hospitality for those who come for the experiences of living at places of worhsip.

A good example may be the Certosa of Pavia, a place of peace and beauty. Whoever wishes to stay and take part of the community's activities can do it freely.

Then there is the medieval art of beer making. Hops and brewing enthusiasts will get the chance to taste remarkable beers produced at the Convent of Carrobiolo in Monza. It has a public shop where the products of its brewery are sold.

You can find fresh produce grown and processed by patient hands that will gladly show their religious work and everyday life.
