San Leolino is also home to a small but active community, composed of priests and laymen, who live and work together as a religious collective studying the relationships between culture and religion. They promote a series of cultural events and exchanges while living the contemplative life. And what better place to do so?

San Leolino is usually open but if it is not you can try ringing the bell to see if they will let you in. The cloister, to the right of the nave, is also not always open. I hope you are lucky when you visit...
