Lucedio Abbey, located near Trino, north-west Italy was founded in 1124, and one of the earliest Cistercian monasteries in Italy. The abbey was secularised in 1784, and today the abbey buildings are part of a nice farm. There is restoration work being undertaken according to wikipedia so that could be promising for aspiring future visitors.

It is said to be cursed by the monks that once resided there. In 1684 many young girls were said to have been visited by the devil in their dreams, he sent them to the abbey and they corrupted the monks into satanism. A history of torture and abuse became so notorious that it reached Pope Pio VI in Rome and the abbey was closed.

It is said that in one room of the abbey a pillar gets wet, some believe it is crying due to the horrific experiences of the past. It could just be a leak… just saying.

An evil presence is said to be buried under the crypt, guardians there had to sit around in a circle. The abbots that died were buried in a circle around it and they naturally appeared to have mummified around that way.
