Monastery museum San Candido

Culture in San Candido

In the shadow of the distinguished collegiate church there is an equally historic building, the outside of which has remained unchanged since the 16 century. The Eastern part dates back to the 10 century to the times of the Benedictine monastery founded in 769 by Duke Tassilo III, which, in 1143, became a collegiate monastery. The Western part was built around 1385 and was given its current design in the 16 century.

The decorative paintings around the windows were created around 1550 by artists from the Bressanone school. The ground floor rooms were used as food stores, upstairs are the chapter house, the library, the archive room, the living room and the study of the librarian and teacher. Today the house contains the monastery’s museum, archive and library.
