Located in the most ancient part of the monastery is what was once St. Benedict's room. The room was constructed using the remnants of the ancient Roman fort which was part of the acropolis they had found on the hilltop when they arrived. The monks of the Beuron school decorated the room in the beginning of the 20th century and it was frescoed after the war by Agostino Pegrassi with monochrome dye which utilizes the shadows at Dusk to create an interesting effect. Visitors to the room of St. Benedict can admire these frescoes and see scenes of the Saint's life.
