Three Fountains Abbey

According to Christian tradition, during the martyrdom of Saint Paul during the first century, he was decapited and his head bounced in three places where springs miracously arose. The Three Fountains Abbey (in Italian: Abbazia delle Tre Fontane) is located at this historic place, which is near the modern suburban Roman district known as EUR. The complex is home to three churches and serves the Trappist Fathers of the Cistercian Order and is located within a quiet and silent setting amongst eucalyptus trees
