The Abbey complex can be traced back to a simple monastery recorded in 1150. At the end of the 12th century building work started on the abbey and this finished around the middle of the following century. The walls and the exposed panels, are decorated with a range of frescoes by different artists, but similar in the influence of the Lombardy school. Amongst those of the 15th century and the beginning of the 16th, some have the signature of Franceschino Boxilio.
