Other Comments: An ancient O.S.B. house, given over to O.Praem. 1221 by Pope Honorius III. A fresco in this house first called Norbert "Sanctus". It is now a "pension" and has a small restaurant as well. Prior arrangements must be made to view the Abbey Church and cloister buildings, which usually remain closed to visitors.
