Breve volo nei pressi del Monastero di Torba (FAI).The millennial vicissitudes of an outpost that became a monastery.The place that would go on to become the Monastery of Torba, immersed in the lush woodlands of Varese at the foot of the Castelseprio archaeological site, started life in the late-Roman era (around the 5th century A.D.) as a military outpost. It subsequently passed into the hands of the Goths and the Longobards, before becoming a monastic seat – a place of prayer and work for Benedictine nuns. As was the case at almost all Benedictine monasteries, the complex at Castelseprio offered shelter to pilgrims and travellers. In 1453, it was abandoned by the Longobard monks and then converted into a rural farmstead. eng.fondoambiente.it
