The Abbey was built in IX century and is today famous because of its culture of the book: in fact here, in the Abbey of Praglia, one of the biggest centers of restoration of ancient books has his headquater. Once we have surpassed the Abbey, we continue riding along the basis of the Mount Lonzina and after a few kilometres we’ll reach Villa dei Vescovi.
