It is one of the more famed churches in Vicenza. Building started in mid 1200's and the purpose over time was to hold the crown of thorns of Christ. These were supposedly given to the bishop by Louis IX. The door, in its own right is magnificent. The structure form the front does not look that large. Go in the rear area and discover the size of the compound form that viewpoint. The convent was rebuilt after destruction in WWI.
