Monastery of Santa Scolastica

Of the twelve monasteries built by St. Benedict in the Subiaco valley, the only one that survived the earthquakes and Saracen destruction was that of Santa Scolastica, which, until the end of the twelfth century, was the only monastery in Subiaco. Originally it was called "Monastery of San Silvestro", later (IX century) it was called "Monastery of San Benedetto and Santa Scolastica" and in the XIV century it took its current name. It looks like a complex of buildings built in different eras and styles: an entrance, on which appears the inscription "Ora et Labora", with structures of the twentieth century, introduces the first cloister or "Renaissance Cloister" of the sixteenth century, from which it passes into a second cloister or "Gothic Cloister" of the XIV century and, finally, in a third, called "Cosmatesco Cloister", of the XIII century. The bell tower dates back to the 12th century and the current church is from the end of the 1700s, the last of five churches that have stratified over the centuries.
