Padova Off The Beaten Path: 77 reviews and 245 photos
This huge monastery is part of the Benedictine monk property as Santa Giustina in the center of Padova. I am particulary close to this place as I used to live wery close to it and was always brought here by my grandmother that now rest in the cemetary nearby.
It is a massive costruction, the monks living there are almost self sufficient as they grow the plants they need and some animals. They are know to sell a excellent honey and some herbs like camomille etc. Their main job is book preservation, the workshop is known all over Europe and still working as far as i know.
It is possible to visit the monastry, the church and part of the workshops. Refer to their website for timetables etc as they change often.
To reach the monastry from Padova you can use SITA bus, they leave from the train station and you can distinguish them from the town bus because they are blue instead of orange. Ask the tickets booth for direction about the right bus to catch.
