Dhamma Atala Vipassana Centre (the name means "firm or steady in Dhamma"), stands at Lutirano near Marradi, in the province of Florence, although actually closer to Faenza. It is around 400m above sea level in the Apennines of Tuscany-Emilia. It is 35 km from Faenza and 75 km from Florence, and can be reached from the A14 and A1 highways. The centre’s setting is rural, quiet and in a verdant landscape, making an ideal place for meditating. The meditation hall is housed in a wooden building, used exclusively for this purpose.
It’s possible to visit the centre when courses are not running by getting in touch with us beforehand.
