Monasticon Praemonstratense (I, 387)

Approximate modern location: Rome, Monte Aventino, Italy

Elm-Number [See below]: 362*

Other Comments: Although virtually none of the original building complex remains, and though this has not been a Premonstratensian House for centuries, the park of San'Alessio is still a wonderful, colorful and peaceful place to visit.  The remains of the cloister garden are now a secluded park with magnificent views of Rome and the Vatican to the north.
