Among the dwellings, the countryside and the industries, stands the bell tower of the Abbey of San Nicola, an important monastic complex. It was founded around the 10th century by the Cluniac order and in 1469 the management passed into the hands of the Olivetan Benedictines, who expanded it. Thanks to a significant restoration, today it represents one of the richest monasteries in Northern Italy.

We are in a residential area surrounded by greenery, excellent for a relaxing break at Laghetto Park. There is a 700 metres cycle track where you can try your hand at high-speed cycling.

Enjoy your ride!
