Corso del Rinascimento, 72
The Tre Fontane (three fountains) Abbey is located in a small valley on the ancient Laurentina way, and has been producing chocolate for over 100 years. The most ancient name of this area is Acque Salvie (where the factory is located) - the name has been linked to the lush and healthy water springs, still to be found today.
Maybe this pure spring water is what makes the abbey's chocolate so special; it is made following an ancient recipe brought here by a Dutch Trappist monk. Other products from Italian monasteries can also be purchased in this charming, wood paneled shop right off the Piazza Navona that dates back to 1894.
