The beatified bishop Hartmann built the ideal monastery at Novacella in 1140. The Augustine monks should be an ideal for the priests of the cathedral and the clerics in Brixen, who, according to Hartmann, had to adjust their spiritual life. Up to our days the Monastery of Novacellahas been an important centre of formation and tourist management. The inside of the monastery and the library can be visited in a guided tour. The church is worth being mentioned as well. With its luxurious inside it is simply breathtaking.
