A hotel in a previous monastery in Saluzzo
Saluzzo is a small medieval town near Turin, in Piedmont and it is very well known because of the old part that still has some of the original houses of the Marquis.
The Monastery of St. Jonh (Convento di San Giovanni, in Italian) was a meeting point for the tourists, since it is located near the Civic Tower where you can have an amazing view of the town from the top. Recently they decided to close this place, a very symbolic example of the religious architecture, and they restored it in order to transform it in a 4-star resort.
The hotel offers 13 rooms located in the upper floors of the building, where in the past Cistercian and Dominican friars lived in the quiet of the place.
