A silent atmosphere
The Convent of Our Lady of Monte Berico is located in a building behind the beautiful basilica of the same name, and includes a small museum with fossils and stones and a souvenir shop. Visitor access is restricted for obvious reasons, but you can enter the cloister, which is dominated by a small, bright inner courtyard. The atmosphere is silent, and you can admire the ancient sundials painted on the walls. The cloister is built in the old Venetian style, with a well in the centre.
