San Francesco del Deserto


"Franciscan Convent"

This island has belonged to Franciscan monks since the 13th Century. It takes its name from St Francis, who arrived on the island at the beginning of the 13th Century, and stayed there for about a month. Some frescoes depicting the visit of St Francis can be admired here, but the best thing about the island is its peaceful atmosphere and the park. The island can only be reached by private boat, which can be taken from Burano or by arrangement with the monks. Tours of the San Francesco del Deserto are provided by the monks.
