Morimondo is a small town around 30 Km away from Milan. The most popular touristic attraction of Morimondo is its famous Cisternian Abbey.

Morimondo Abbey

It was founded in the 12th century (1136) by the Cistercians coming from the French Monastery of Morimond. After having moved to Lombardy, they maintained the name of their mother-Abbey (from the word “mora” in latin = swamp). The basilica, built after the construction of the Monastery (from 1182), is today the most interesting monument for visitors travelling to Morimondo. It reflects the design of Cisternian churches wanted by S. Bernardus: grandiose and solemn, in contrast with the austerity and poverty of the life of monks, whose merit was to drain and improve the agricultural territories.
