    Far from the traffic of downtown, but still only two steps away is this Monastery founded in medieval times. Governed by the Benedictine nuns, to see the resting place of the blessed Beatrice d'Este and the frescoes of the Giotto school

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Peaceful monastery with magnificent frescoes of the school of Giotto and emiliennes from the 14 to the 16th century. Attention, opening only from 15:15 to 16:45 every day. Ring the doorbell of the monastery for the visit.
