Follina, Treviso Province
FOLLINA, TREVISO PROVINCE
Follina is a town with ancient origins, where the Santa Maria Abbey, built in the 12th century in late Romanesque style, stands among attractive 16th and 17th buildings
The abbey was founded by a group of Cistercian monks who started a prosperous wool processing business here. The exterior of the church is simple and reflects the stylistic canons of the Cistercian order; the large wooden portals and central rose window are remarkable. The interior is filled with frescoes and works of art: the high altar contains the very old statue of the Madonna del Sacro Calice, from Nubia, dating back to the 4th century AD. The statue is the protagonist of a miraculous story that still today attracts pilgrims as a sign of devotion. The most fascinating spot for visitors is the cloisters, which form an ambiance of rare charm. Visiting hours: from 8:45 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
