Minorite Monastery

Recommended
Beneath a 30m bell tower, the Church of St Francis of Assisi and the monastery were remodelled in the late 18C, taking on their current Baroque appearance. The Renaissance portal of the façade and the charming little early-16C stands out. It is in this monastery that Giuseppe Tartini, a famous 18C composer, received the rudiments of his musical education. His father himself is buried in the family grave.
