  • Also known as the Monastery of the olivetans is the oldest place of Catholic worship in Ferrara and is located on the right bank of the Po di Volano where once was the first nucleus of the city. Only in the twelfth century the center of political and religious life was stationed on the left bank. At the same time, the Basilica has lost the role of Cathedral, following the construction of the Cathedral of St. George. The façade of the Church was built in 1722 to designs by Andrea Farmer, who took care of the sculptural decoration. Above the aisles, there are two statues: to the left, a San Giorgio as Bishop of Ferrara and, right, San Lorenzo. At the Centre of the façade, aligned with the portal, there is a bas-relief in stone with St George Slaying the Dragon. The Bell Tower (the characteristic slope), ffu work of Biagio Rossetti, and consists of four blocks of brick. To the left of the Church, is the entrance to the cloister embellished in the Middle by a large marble well Olivetan emblem. The Interior has three naves with various altars and paintings in the aisles. The organ is impressive though recently.

  • It is situated outside the city centre, but served by public transport. Typical medieval church with the altar of our Lady of the willow that inspires moments of prayer and reflection.

  • It was the first church to gather our attention as soon as we arrived in Ferrara. Located outside the walls over the channel. Easily accessible by car and parking facilities. The Church inside is very impressive and well preserved and in the Christmas season takes on a further appeal. Next door is the kiosk with daily local life of the Benedictine monks.
