WHO WE ARE
The Monastery of Saints Peter and Paul in Germagno (VB) is a Benedictine priory of the Sublacense-Cassinese Congregation and was founded in 1971.

Located on the slopes of Mount Massone, it protrudes - as from a natural balcony - on Lake Orta.

The community is currently made up of nine monks who have joined seven "brothers and sisters in the world". Near the Monastery there is also a sister who tries to make her the monastic spirit of the community.
Even among the differences that an original vocation imposes, we all try to witness a single "community", passionate for the good of each of its members, who is committed to living according to the prospects of that good zeal, which Benedict describes in chapter 72 of the his Rule.

THE WORK
Work is an essential element of the spiritual life of the monk. It is not only intended to support the community economically, but is an instrument of human and spiritual growth.
The adage "ora et labora", which in tradition outlines the life of the monks, closely associates it to prayer because it can be lived as a place of communion with God and of participation in his creative work. An atmosphere of silence and immersion in nature favor this recollection.
The work of the community takes place ordinarily within the context of the monastery and is organized around some branches of production that allow a relative ease of execution.


The most important sector is the agricultural sector, which includes, in addition to the care of the garden and the forest to make them welcoming and pleasant, the recovery of ancient terracing, their reclamation and the cultivation of undergrowth fruits and fruit.
Given the location of the Monastery at 730 meters above sea level and the characteristics of the land are grown blueberries, blackberries, black currant, white currant, red currant, but also apples, pears, plums, peaches, quinces, loquats, rhubarb, etc.

A laboratory commits some brothers in the transformation of this fruit into jam, which is placed on the market to sustain the community.

Honey

High quality monastic products for sale online

The uncontaminated environment of the Vallestrona is the ideal context where the monks carry out their beekeeping activity. The honeys produced are those of the essences prevalent in these woods: acacia, linden, lime-chestnut, chestnut and millefiori. This activity is very linked to the seasonal trend, so the production is very variable from year to year, but the quality is high because the bees are bottling in woods far from sources of pollution.
Hives are managed using only plant protection products whose principles are found in nature, such as thymol, acetic acid, oxalic acid, so as to ensure the absence of any chemical residues in honey. So a small production but of quality.

Alcohol

A distillate production has recently begun to enrich the range of products. After some years of study we started the production of barrel-branded apple brandy: a very refined distillate that combines the softness and the aromaticity of the fruit distillates to the body and complexity of the grappas refined in cask. For those who love the simplest and freshest flavors, there is the young apple brandy. It retains the aromas of the apple and can best be enjoyed on ice cream or cold.
When the productions of our orchards allow us, we will start other fruit brandies.
Then there is a line of flavored grappa for those who love the most classic tastes. Old recipes and new experiments allow us to offer particular products for taste and genuineness.

How to reach us:

Highway:
From the A26 motorway, exit at Gravellona Toce towards "Lago d'Orta". After the center of Gravellona, ​​continue straight along a straight uphill at the end of which there is a traffic light. Here turn right to Casale C. C. Go up to the village and enter the center passing under the church beyond which there is a fork; keep right towards "Montebuglio". Continue on the obvious, relatively flat road, having the valley on your left and the mountain on the right. Once in Montebuglio continue straight until you get on a road that goes up from the left, continuing straight on until the village of Gattugno. Here it seems that the road ends, but between the church and the houses, the road continues, entering the wood. After a long stretch, a house facing a crossroads appears on the left: it turns around the house (left - left) and takes the road that leads to the monastery. Pay attention to the concrete section: take the largest possible curve on the left.

Along the lake:
Arrive in Omegna and, at the traffic lights in the city center, follow the signs Valstrona. After having started the valley, after about 2.5 km there is the hamlet of Canova del Vescovo with a narrow pass: immediately there is a deviation to U on the right for Germagno. Arriving at the village, keep right on the inter-estate road that leads to the Quaggione. Starting up again, after about 1 km in the woods, there are restored huts and a crossroads: keep the right here, following the indications of a white-blue sign indicating the Resurrection Garden and take the road that leads to the monastery. Pay attention to the concrete section: take the largest possible curve on the left.

On the train:
Take the Milan-Domodossola line (Bern or Geneva) and get off at Verbania station. Another less important railway line is Novara-Domodossola: get off at the Omegna station. On a previous agreement with the brothers, a car will wait for you at the stations.
