  • Armenians scattered around the world.. but preserved their history and culture. Few people know that Armenians were brave warriors and many of them were in service and the Roman and Byzantine emperors. The history of Armenians in Venice is amazing and interesting. In 1717, with Greek Islands ran monk named Mechitar-Manuk di Pietro. He adopted the Catholic faith, joined the same monks who had fled from Turkish yoke-fellow tribesmen. The Venetian authorities gave them the pustovavshij Benedictine convent on the island of St. Lazarus. Order of Saint Benedict has been on the island since the year 810. the name of St. Lazarus Island got in the XXII century. The island was at one time and a leper colony. Mkhitar with comrades organized order, later known as the order of St. Mkhitar. It is considered the second most important in the world of Armenian cultural center, but Catholic. First Echmiadzin in Armenia. Monastery attended artist Aivazovsky, who devoted many paintings and monks. Gorgeous library-000000 150 volumes. In the year 1810 Napoleon awarded the monastery on the island was the status of the Academy and typography, which lasted until the year 1991, almost 200 years. . Visited the monastery and George Byron, attempted to study Armenian language. In addition to the magnificent monastery library there are also paintings by Aivazovsky. On a trip to get difficult, but worth it.

  • Great place to visit if you have time in Venice and already visited San Marco and Doge's Palace and looking for something special. This old Monastery founded by Armenian monk and philosopher Mekhitar ...  more »
  • Island completely dedicated to the Armenian monastery, with a library and other unique finds. Now even a unique photographic exhibition on the Armenian genocide ... explained in an excellent way by a girl superappassionata and connoisseur of this topic ... watch out for visiting hours ... Truly not to be missed and to deepen this cultural metropolis.

  • This magnificent island hosts an ancient library. You can find it in the tales by Hugo Pratt.
  • If you're Armenian, you need to check this place out. If you're not, you still should, because it is beautiful and absolutely serene. If you want to escape the craziness of Venice for a couple hours, this is your perfect retreat. It was founded by Abate Mechitar in 1701. There are daily tours once a day at 3:25pm, so go check it out!
  • Impressive history of the Armenian presence and contributions to Venice.
  • A place rich in history and culture, something different from the usual tourist Venice, but important to understand the story
