Piona is located on the eastern shore of the lake. Every year a lot of people reach this place to visit the Abbey built in the 12th century on the summit of the peninsula by Cluniac Monks. It is one of the finest examples of the Romanesque style typical of the region, Following a period of neglect and various usages, the building was restored at the beginning of the 20th century. It has belonged to its current residents, the Cistercians of the Abbey of Casamari, since 1937. The monks still living here accompany with pleasure tourists to tell them about the history of this place full of medieval spirit.
