It is located on San Benedetto street, just outside the walls.
Benedictine Abbey of the 13th century, with well preserved architecture, has two lancet doors and a lancet trefoil portal. It bears a stone-carved inscription in Roman numerals, showing the date 1337.
Inside it has a nave and two semicircular cross side chapels and retains only parts of the third-fourth century frescoes of the Gubbio school, including what is perhaps the oldest portrait of Pope Urban V. 
The residential part of the abbey has been restored and expanded in recent decades.
