Built in 1267, the Abbey of San Lorenzo in Monlue features an imposing square-shaped bell tower, embellished by cornices and suspended arches. Its interior boasts a single nave dominated by a 16th century coffered ceiling ending in a rectangular apse based on Cistercian models. Typical with medieval settlements built by the Humiliati, farmsteads were built with large farmyards. In summer,the Abbey of San Lorenzo in Monlue farmyard is used as a setting for concerts and shows.  Just near the River Lambro, the hamlet is surrounded by a park of fields and woods traversed by cycling tracks and pedestrian paths.
