the monastery of Polirone - 3rd part
(San Benedetto Po (MN) - Lombardia)

With this 3rd part we conclude the visit to the Polirone monastery.
Our advice: if you go to visit this splendid complex, and it almost an obligation, dedicate the morning to the visit to the museum and the afternoon to the guided tour of the complex, or vice versa.

At noon, don't miss going to taste some local flavor, abundant in this land which combines the Mantuan and Reggio-Modena cuisine, as San Benedetto Po is located in the province of Mantua, Lombardy, but it is located in south of the Po and, therefore, with considerable Emilian influences.

A bit of history:

cloister of San Simeone
it dates back to 1420 - 1480, presents frescoes with episodes from the life of the saint.

cloister of San Benedetto
dating back to 1450, initially closed on all four porticoed sides, with the restructuring of Giulio Romano it lost its original feature.

ancient cellars
in this evocative and ancient location there are a series of historiated Padanian farm carts, in addition to several archaeological finds.

monastic refectory
dating back to 1478 it contains a fresco by Correggio, (Antonio Allegri 1489-1534), probably painted in the early 1500s when he was still a student.

monument to Matilda of Canossa
inaugurated in 2015 in the ninth centenary of death.
