#1. The 200-foot waterfall of Acquacheta, two hours hike from the village of San Benedetto in Alpe in the Appenine mountains, 40 miles east of Florence
#2. Dante mentioned the waterfall of Acquacheta and San Benedetto in Alpe in Canto sixteen, verses 94-105 of Inferno in the Divine Comedy.
#3. The monks started building the Abbey even before the 9th century. They had already been there for hundreds of years.
It fell into disrepair centuries later when funds were being diverted to build the Duomo of Florence to the west of these mountains.
It's built on a rocky ridge, called the Poggio, and the original crypt survives still.
