Entering a monastery is not an everyday occurrence for secularised Swedes, but we think it is an excellent idea here, in Tuscany’s Sant’ Antimo. The monastery is believed to have been built sometime in the 12th century, and is still active today. The monks pray several times a day in the form of a capella chanting – it is balm for the soul, whether you are a believer or not.
