SANTA MARIA ABBEY OF LUCEDIO

The Lucedio Abbey, situated near Trino, is especially famous for the many legends concerning its long history. Secret crypts, the mummified corpses of abbots sitting on thrones arranged in a circle, underground rivers, and a column that “weeps” over the horrors that it has been a silent witness to, are just a sample of what these stories offer. The abbey buildings are contained within the walls of a complex that hosts an historically important rice farm.
