Borzone Abbey

Borzone Abbey
Borzone Abbey

It is a valuable sacred building consisting of a church and a bell tower, the ruins of a cloister, and the buildings of Case Araxi. The hypotheses on the origins of the Abbey get lost among history and legend: the inscription on a tower marble block dates back to 1244, but without a doubt the main body of the church dates back to the Longorbard period (7th century), and was built on a pre-existing building dating back to the Byzantine period (6th century).
The abbey, situated in the Municipality of Borzonasca, is surrounded by minor settlements and placed in an enchanting position in the middle of a natural amphitheater, giving the visitors a sense of peacefulness.
