A day in Novacella


At the Abbey of Novacella, thirty Augustinian monks preserve a jewel of culture and community life, where prayer, study and teaching manage to coexist with agricultural activity (the wine produced here is excellent) and tourism. The circular building called Engelsburg (Castel of the Angel) recalls the rotunda of the Holy Sepulchre; the library of Giuseppe Sartori is full of ancient and rare documents, including some important musical manuscripts; there is also the Pinacoteca (the picture gallery), even if the Abbey Church is the structure that really makes one's breathless.
