A few minutes from the city center of Bressanone there’s an old cloister, called Novacella (meaning new cloister – at that time).
It’s a relatively famous destination in the area and it counts a colorful church and a huge library, every reader’s dream!
Dating back to 1140, it stills hosts a community of Augustinian monks, which amongs other things produce wine and serve more than 20 parishes. To the complex belong a wineyard, the church, the library, a convention center and the dormrooms.
You can reach this beauty taking the bus (around 10 minutes ride) from Bressanone, or by car.
In the center of the courtyard there’s a fountain with some paintings on it. It shows the seven wonders plus the eighth one: Novacella! Do you think it’s right?
