Monastery of Sant'Antonio in Polesine

Set in the heart of the medieval city, the monastery still gives the sense of isolation and tranquillity it did during its early years, when it stood upon an island in the middle of the Po.
Monastery of Sant'Antonio in Polesine

Founded by the Blessed Beatrice d'Este, daughter of Marquis Azzo VII, the convent was always protected by the Este family, who were never sparing with money for its embellishment. In its period of greatest splendour, the growth of the Benedictine community was such that it occupied a large number of adjacent buildings; nowadays the nuns live in the oldest and most interesting wing of the complex.
