Via della Repubblica 15 - 06024 Gubbio
It is located at Santo Benedetto street, just outside the walls.
Benedictine Abbey of the 13th century, with 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 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.
