Church
“E' un posto magico: ritornerete indietro di secoli visitando questo santuario con una splendida chiesa ed un chiostro ancora intatto. Se lo visitate chiedete di don Sergio e dite che siete ospiti di Rizieri e Lara: vi farà vedere tutto .... e forse vi offrirà anche il caffè!!”

“At the southwest corner of the old town, the Dominican church of San Nicolò is a spacious Gothic church built in brick during the 13th and 14th centuries. It has round piers and an unusual vaulted timber roof, which has been restored. On the high altar is Madonna Enthroned by Fra Marco Pensaben and Savoldo from 1521, and the tomb of Senator Agostino Oningo is by master sculptors Pietro and Tullio Lombardi dating from 1490. The elaborate organ, completed in 1779, is by Gaetano Callido, and a nearby fresco represents St. Christopher. But the frescoes in the chapterhouse of the former monastery are especially impressive. Wrapping around the room is a frieze of 40 fresco portraits of Dominicans by Tommaso da Modena, painted in 1352. What makes them so outstanding, even in this city where there are so many examples of his work, is their personality, even humor. Each friar is shown at work, engaged in mundane duties at his desk, and the liveliness and individuality of their portrayal is surprising for its day, even for a follower of Giotto, as Tommaso was. Address: Via San Nicolò, Treviso”

Church
“The mix of Romanesque and Gothic features in this church hints at its origin in the 13th century, when Gothic was beginning to replace the older, heavier Romanesque. Hence its rounded transept and entrance arches and lighter sleeker arches of the windows and some chapels. History has not treated the church kindly. Like many others in Treviso, it was commandeered by the French army when they took control of Venice and Treviso in 1797, robbed of its art, and used as a military storehouse. The monastery was demolished, and it was robbed of its cloisters, and a house was built with the bricks of two cloisters. The church floor was removed, and the interior divided into several floors to create more storage space. What's amazing is how much has survived. Inside the restored church is the 1364 tomb of Dante's son, Pietro Alighieri, a coffered timber ceiling, and in the altar to the left of the main altar, a Madonna and Child, with the saints painted by Tommaso of Modena. Address: Via San Francesco, Treviso ”
