Centro Congressi Le Benedettine is an ancient Monastery held by nuns. It was built in 1393 on the south bank of the Arno river, in an area called “tegularia” in the late Middle Ages. During the centuries, the Monastery went through massive renovations.
Nowadays, closed to the cult, it is completely restored and used as a venue for meetings and conferences by the University of Pisa.
