  • The monastery, whose name derives from the fact that at the time of construction the Po River was passing nearby, is located in the medieval part of the historical centre of Ferrara. It is best known for the Chinese cherry present in the courtyard outside who, when he was alive, was a destination for photographers and tourists in the bloom. However the monastery reveals in his insides frescoes and other works of art that are not normally open to visitors if so agreed with the nuns; the cloisters and chapels internal inspire a sense of solemn meditation even in a non-believer also the monastery is located a short walk from the Museum of Spina, very interesting also, so a visit not to be missed.

  • Don't miss this mystical experience between the enclosure. Sounds a Bell and the wooden door opens and you see a nun creed over eighty who accompanies you and tells you the frescoes with a chant that is hard to follow and impossible to stop. Giotto school frescoes very beautiful especially the escape of Egypt and the crucifixion. All free but you can buy of the cloistered Sisters among other things nice.

  • Outstanding frescoes. Unfortunately, a guided tour given by one of the nuns is mandatory - which limits the amount of time one can spend with the artworks. Also, no photos allowed as they want visitors to purchase souvenirs from their small shop at the end of the tour.
  • The convent, whose decoration was lavishly supported by the Este family, has a chapel open to the public, with a beautiful 17th-century frescoed ceiling. The church inside, which a nun will show you if you ring the bell during the posted hours, has three chapels that are decorated in extraordinary early 14th-century frescoes, some by followers of Giotto.
  • Very sacred church . Got lost on the way to locate it. Worth visiting.
  • The door of the monastery should be ringing. Still works as a convent. So a very nice Italian-speaking nun going round to lead the Church. Understandably, it can be read as a comment on everything, even if you do not speak Italian. Therefore the beni llátványt and feeling not to be missed. Unfortunately it is not possible to take photos inside. Just for yourself, and you take on the beauty of the elmédbe.
