These pictures show the cloister, that is traditionally said to have been built by Biagio Rossetti. In the middle of the courtyard there is a harmonious well-curb (first photo), attributed to Sansovino, built in Corinthian-like style.
The second photo show the bell-tower of the church, which will be described in the following tip.
The walls of the cloister are full of stones with the names of the benefactors who contributed to the maintenance of the monastery, like the one you see in the third picture.
The fourth and fifth photos show the colonnate of another inner courtyard.
