Join us on a journey on the Romanesque routes!
Romanesque Road in Saxony-Anhalt celebrates 20th anniversary
In 2013, the Romanesque Road in Saxony-Anhalt celebrates its 20th anniversary. A year full of highlights is awaiting the guests of the 1,000 kilometers long holiday route in the heart of Germany. A very special day has been dedicated to each of the 80 Romanesque monuments.
Saint Mary's Abbey Vezzolano - Albugnano
The Abbey of Santa Maria di Vezzolano (St Mary of Vezzolano) is one of Piedmont’s best preserved ancient monuments. It stands at the bottom of one of the Monferrato region’s highest hills at the end of a minor road, which, as it passes alongside the Abbey, allows the visitor to gain ever more fascinating glimpses of the complex’s tower and main building before he or she finally arrives at its lovely facade.
Romanesque Day on the Huysburg
The 3rd October is not only the German Unification Day but also the "Day of Romanesque Art on the Huysburg". Monks and employees look back to nearly 1,000 year of monasterial history.
Lectures, guided tours, kids activities and concerts are on the agenda. Delicacies from the kitchen and cave will be served to hungry guests. The café and the monastery shop invite visitors to forage and linger.
