Abbazia di Sant’Antimo

Abbazia di Sant’Antimo

In absolute contrast to the elaborate three cathedrals above, this serene Romanesque church of travertine and alabaster—set below hills of olive trees and grapevines near Montalcino—is amazing to behold. The interior is ascetic, calming, and spiritual. The acoustics are sublime for the Gregorian chants intoned at mass and prayers held throughout the day.
