Novacella monastery

The Augustinian monastery at Novacella in Varna with its late Baroque abbey church is still a lively, active establishment. Bishop Hartmann of Bressanone founded the monastery in 1142 and over the years the monastery has built up a collection of treasures of great art-historical value. In addition to the abbey church these include the valuable library, the Gothic cloister, the art gallery, the tomb of the minstrel Oswald von Wolkenstein and the miraculous fountain in the courtyard which is said to be the eighth wonder of the world. The Novacella monastery is also one of the most important vineyards in South Tyrol producing top quality wines such as Müller-Thurgau, Sylvaner and Kerner.
