San Benedetto “Outside-the-Walls”

In an effort to plan for the long term growth of the community, in 2008 we purchased a 16th century former Capuchin monastery which sits on a ridge with breathtaking views of the valley of Norcia. The present structure there is only a ruin, overrun by the lush Umbrian hillside which surrounds it.
 
With the help of experienced local architects we have prepared a plan to recover all the beauty of this battered structure while adding the necessary elements for a modern Benedictine monastery. The ambitious renovation plan has been estimated to cost around 6 million Euros. If you would like to take part in this history making project, please contact us.
