Piove in flower....with taste
(Piove di Sacco (PD) - Veneto)

The spring blooms and the towns bloom too. The 2nd flower market show took place at Piove di Sacco on 30.5.09.
It’s perfectly logic: the new road leading to there (and beyond) from Padova is just called “the nurseries road”.

Interesting and crowded the show and also the tasting of local flavours near the Pescheria under the care of the Bakers and the Butchers of the Saccisia.

A beautiful costume parade took place in the afternoon.

To visit:

The greater tower, the last remaining of the fortification built by the Carraresi; over which stands the bell tower of the near San Martino cathedral.
The cathedral is very important and dates back to the 10th century.
In its interior: the altar piece “Madonna del Carmelo” and the painting “San Francesco da Paola” by Giambattista Tiepolo, the altar of the Blessed Sacrament (1554), by Jacopo Sansovino.
Interesting also the Madonna delle Grazie Sanctuary (around 1484), about one km from the centre along the Fiumicello river.

At last, do not forget the typical Casoni of the Saccisia (see our special).
