A few words on: The Benedictines Convent/Monastery of the Saint-Sacrament

A wonderful image of what was also once a boarding school for girls; the Benedictines Convent/Monastery of the Saint-Sacrament (19th century) – located in the north of Erbalunga and the Cintolinu district. A cultural treasure, belonging to the municipality of Brandu. It was in 1916, and due to poor workmanship, that one of the wings collapsed. The main church (ringing) bell weighing 2 tons. It was a girls’ boarding school from 1899 – 1963, and the boarding area was connected to the monastery by elevated and underground passages. the monastery was founded in 1862, by Toussaint Casanelli d’Istria Bishop of Ajaccio.
