SAN SALVARO MONASTERY

SAN SALVARO MONASTERY

The San Salvaro monastic center was built before 1100 in correspondance of the Stone bridge of Fratta landscape, along the ancient route from Vighizzolo, fortified port on the homonymous channel that communicated with the Adige, and ran through the ancient villages of Cancello (Carceri), Gazo, Ponso, Megliadino and Altaura, to reach San Salvaro and then onward to Marega and to the Verona lower area. It is located in a picturesque setting in the south of Padua, on the border with the Verona province, affected over the centuries by wars, trade and migration. This particular location has inspired the creation of this museum dedicated to Ancient Ways of the Padua lower area, which is proposed as a historical documentation center that traces the territory development of this Padua's area, the birth of the ancient road layout and the street life of a time.
