San Paolo Island

Description

San Paolo Island is a charming islet located south of the bigger island Montisola, to which it used to be connected by a track you could walk on when the water level was very low.

During the past, it was considered as an abandoned and desert cliff, where in 1490 the aristocrat Alessandro Fenaroli built the convent of San Paolo, hosting the friar Minors till 1783, the year the whole homestead was sold to privates.
