Discover the history of the Montecassino Abbey


Cassino, a few minutes far from the lovely Best Western Hotel Rocca, is a city that feeds on history, culture and unspoilt nature that surrounds the area. 


Montecassino Abbey

One of the most important monuments of the city is the famous Montacassino Abbey which played a very important role during the Second World War.

In 1944 the abbey was bombed several times, but always rebuilt in its splendor and is today one of the destinations to discover and visit.The Battle of Montecassino was long and caused immense losses of human life.


The Abbey of Montecassino, the epicenter of Benedictine devotion in the world and a national monument since 1866, stands on the mountain overlooking the beautiful valley of the Rapido and Liri rivers. Between the walls, the monks have transcribed the works of classical antiquity: precious documents are preserved, such as the "Placito cassinese" first legal document in the vulgar language, miniature codes and rare incunabula.

Furthermore, "Ora et Labora et Lege" prevails: the motto of the Rule of Saint Benedict that the monks still follow today in their daily routine.

You can visit the whole monastery and talk to monks who will tell you the history of the abbey from its origins. Also, within an information center where you can book a guided tour with industry experts for individuals, schools and groups.
