The Monastery of Saints Peter and Paul in Germagno is a Benedictine priory of the Sublacense-Cassinese Congregation and was founded in 1971.
Located on the slopes of Mount Massone, it leans out - as if from a natural balcony - over Lake Orta.
The monastery, as the house of God, of which the monks themselves are the first guests, remains a place where everyone can draw refreshment and peace.
Men and women can thus share this atmosphere of listening to reinvigorate their daily journey.
In the period of the year that goes from April to September, the community welcomes scout groups, equipped with tents, in a field of the monastery, equipped with drinking water taps and mobile toilets to be assembled at the moment.
The minimum age required is that of the "Branca Rover e Scolte" including the novitiate, i.e. between 15 and 21 years.
The community is currently made up of nine brother monks joined by seven "brothers and sisters in the world". Near the monastery also lives a sister who tries to make her the monastic spirit of the community.
Despite the differences that an original vocation imposes, we all try to bear witness to a single "community", passionate about the good of each of its members, which finds itself committed to living according to the prospects of that good zeal which Benedict describes in chapter 72 of the his Rule.
