  • It is said that the oldest part of Ferrara was right here, the monastery is a place out of time, in a street with pebbles, somewhat hidden, away from the clamor, there remain a few Benedictine nuns who in return for a donation break the seclusion to show you, albeit in reduced hours and not during the holidays, the beauty that lie behind that little door located to the right of the door of the Church. The chapel on the left is dedicated to the stories of Jesus ' infancy and the life of the Virgin: are frescoes of the Giotto school, executed in the early decades of the 300; It is difficult to assert whether or not the master came to Ferrara, but all tend to confirm his presence. The middle one is the largest and its entrance is surmounted by an architrave with a crucifix of ' 400. The front panel houses a 15th century Annunciation by Domenico Panetti. The ceiling is grotesque: a detail "profane" which shows the contact between the monastery and the Court. The chapel on the right has as its theme the passion and is the work of two master Giotto: here is the masterpiece of Jesus on the cross spontaneously via a staircase, absolutely rare iconography that cannot fail to surprise the visitor. The monastery was formerly linked to the Este family, since Beatrice d'Este founded the religious community. Until a few years ago in the courtyard there was a Japanese cherry tree of rare beauty that was transplanted from a friar at the beginning of ' 900 and that after a century of life and bloom exceedingly beautiful, has gone slowly.

  • It's a cloistered convent ancient that keeps inside, besides the tomb of Beatrice d'Este, an extraordinary fresco cycle. Knock the doorbell and wait patiently for a nun open and conduct the visit.

  • Beautiful trecento frescoes and gives a real feeling for many women's lives in the late medieval and early Renaissance periods.

  • 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.
  • Very sacred church . Got lost on the way to locate it. Worth visiting.
  • Beautiful church and monastery, to see the tomb of blessed Beatrice d'Este, the body exudes a prodigious liquid that can be purchased by the nuns

  • Beautiful church with a tranquil garden in the Center

  • The outdoor garden provides relaxation during the city tour, to visit the inside with frescoes, to do so just ring and wait for the sister who will be your guide
