  • Experience culture at the "Trappa"

    There are magic places - Surrounded by idyllic countryside and situated on 1.000 meters above the sea level, you can find the cultural center "la Trappa". In between mountains, wide meadows and barren landscape above the tree line, the stone-built "Trappa" majestically juts out. The front garden, the sparse but interesting landscape is somewhat reminiscent of a monastery. Indeed, the "Trappa" was used as a home by the religious Order of Cistercians (members of the Order of Cistercians in Italy were called "trappista"). It was used as a monastery, even if only for six years, at the end of the 18th century, when French "trappisti" found protection from persecution in the house. The building should have been at that time in a state of disrepair. | Learn more...
