The Servite Convent, a place of silence and recollection ..

Venzo 2B (Vescovato article)At the Col St Antoine, one can find the ruins of the Servite Convent. And, it was here that took place the “La Consulta di a Casabianca”, where Pasquale Paoli was named “Babbu di a Patria”.

In the early 19th century, the monastery was burned by the conventional Salicetti.Today, beautifully refurbished and fenced off, it no longer suffers from the hooves of our peaceful cows, unconcerned about the old stones who continue to contemplate them. A short distance from Viscuvatu, it is a place of silence and recollection, that contributes to making the island an exceptional garden.
