SAN DANIELE BENEDECTINE MONASTERY

SAN DANIELE BENEDECTINE MONASTERY

The original plan is of 1086, Benedectine's work of the Basilica of Santa Giustina of Padua. Was suppressed by a Republic of Venice decree in 1771 and, after being sold to private owners, it was transformed into a villa. Since 1948 hosts again a religious community, the Bnedectine nuns exiled from Rijeka after the annexation of this part by the former Yugoslavia. Currently you can visit the beautiful church with a central plan, in Baroque style, designed by Francesco Muttoni.

Inside there are preserved a painting of the Nativity of Jesus attributed to Palma il Giovane and the ancient wooden choir of the XVII century protected by an iron gate. On the right of the Church there is the monastery with the Belvedere terrace, from where you can admire the Euganean Hills and interiors, or rather the many rooms built in the period when the building was used as a villa.
