Abbazia di Novacella, a working monastery, functions as a sustainable small village. The grounds include castles that date back to the 11th century, vibrantly hued gardens, and an acclaimed vineyard. Little boys of the monastery boarding school dash between corridors and kick footballs amid the guided tours. Guests can peruse the stunning Baroque Cathedral (ask to see the iconic dangling foot), museum, library, and winery. A shop sells regional and monastery-made products, including teas and wines, and the restaurant offers a small taste of the wines that have been sustaining monks and their guests for centuries.
