Via della Repubblica 15 - 06024 Gubbio
It is located at Santo Benedetto street, just outside the walls.
Benedictine Abbey of the XIII century, with a well preserved architecture, has two lancet and a lancet trefoil portals, an inscription in Roman numerals, showing the date 1337 on stone.
Inside it has a nave and two semicircular cross side chapels and retains only parts of the three-century frescoes of 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.
