Former Abbey of S. Bartolomeo

Address: 14030 Azzano d'Asti AT, Italia

The abbey, already existing in 952, was dedicated to S. Maria Madre di Dio.

In 1400, it housed 12 to 20 monks and had about 2500 days of land (3 days are about one hectare).

It was severely sacked during the Napoleonic period and abandoned to decay.

The ruins of the abbey became a brick quarry for the people of Azzano and finally disappeared around 1900.

Of the abbey, today, there is only the name of the locality San Bartolomeo.
