  • And of the neoclassic period, with its small garden and quadrarco. Interesting especially the story told on the explanatory panel concerning the manner in which the Franciscan monks protected and hid the mortal remains of Dante, murandole and interrandole well before this tomb was erected. For those who want, alongside, in the convent, there is an original Dante Museum (surcharge).

  • Respect for Dante imposes don't skip the tomb with his mortal remains, free admission, but the same respect for the Supreme perhaps would require a more imposing mausoleum.
