Oratory of Anthony the Abbot

The Oratory of Anthony the Abbot, on the south-facing slope of Mt. Madonna, can be easily reached by following a path from Passo Fiorine. The Romanesque building (14th century) is what is left of a larger structure that included a bigger church, the basis of whose apse is still visible by the bell tower. The oratory, which has been recently restored, and a stretch of wall are all that remains of the ancient monastery. A will from 1215 shows that a group of monks belonging to Congregazione Benedettina degli Albi inhabited the monastery until the first half of the 14th century.
