USAC took us on a field trip to Sacra di San Michele, Saint Michael's Abbey. It is a beautiful monastery built in the late 900s. It is at the very top of Mount Pirchiriano. In fact, there is an area of the church where you can see the actual mountain. The bus took us most of the way up the mountain, and the rest we walked while it was raining even though it was sunny out. The view were stunning and learning about the history of the abbey was really interesting.
