Approdati durante un tour in laguna siamo stati accolti da un frate (sono rimasti in 5) che nel chiostro ci ha spiegato la storia dell'isola. La tradizione vuole che S.

Tradition has it that St. Francis was a guest returning from a trip to the East in 1220. The church with the 3 chapels (including the one where the saint prayed) and the beautiful park that allows magnificent views of the surrounding lagoon are worth a visit.
Era da tempo che volevo recarmi in alcune isole veneziane, a me sconosciute ed ho colto l'occasione con degli amici di avventurarmi in questa esplorazione.

Among those visited, I was particularly impressed by St. Francis of the desert, Oasis of Peace, a place of meditation for those who want to isolate themselves from the clamors and crowding of the cities; Mazzorbo, with its vineyards, where there is the "Venissa" estate from which you can get the Dorona wine, ancient indigenous grape and the famous crops of artichokes; From here through a bridge you reach Burano, a beautiful island with its surprisingly colourful houses, which according to the legend are so painted to be better recognizable by the fishermen who fall in their homes a bit ' Alticci. Torcello, however, seemed somewhat austere, perhaps because it was sparsely inhabited or more probable for the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta that towers imposing in the center of the island. So I crowned a long-cultivated dream, in which I plunged even from the dance of the boat that transported us in the lagoon. The tour then ended with a reconnaissance of Treviso, a city I already knew and that has still reserved some surprises. A beautiful journey comforted by beautiful sunny days and a comprehensive and passionate tourist guide.
A place of silence and prayer. The minor friars who have him in custody are kind and welcoming. Place full of spiritual energy
