The Hermitage of St. Albert of Butrio

Our journey through the Oltrepò Pavese continues: if someone is looking for somewhere peaceful, surrounded by nature, they can come to this mid-mountain and upper country side. We're just under 700 metres above sea level. Discover the hermitage and the abbey of St. Albert of Butrio which offers hospitality to pilgrims, tourists and hikers, so that people can rest, pray and relax for a day or two.
