The island of the Certosa of Venice
The island of the Certosa extends over 20 hectares of parkland rich in vegetation, from woods of Chinese Privet with its exotic essences, white poplars and ash trees that recreate the prehistoric environment of the Venice lagoon, a mulberry of exceptional size and biotopes reminiscent of the environments of the most exotic of islands. The island of the Certosa's preservation of its priceless natural heritage has led to its being chosen to become the City of Venice's Urban Park, for both Venetians and non-Venetians to enjoy.
The Isola della Certosa, which has been the seat of an Augustinian and Carthusian monastery since the thirteenth century, is a place full of history The monks were the first to make improvements and introduce cultural and agricultural activities on the island, such as vegetable gardens and vineyards. Because of its peace and tranquillity so close to Venice, many nobles found refuge at the Certosa spiritual refuge. With the Napoleonic suppression of religious orders, the island was used for military purposes and abandoned finally in the 1960s. It was left in a state of total abandonment for several decades until 1996 when restoration began which continues today.
What to see in Venice
It is just 15 minutes by public water bus with frequent connections to Piazza San Marco, the headquarters of the Biennale “Giardini”, Murano Island, Venice Lido and Venice Marco Polo Airport. On the island there are still some craft activities: in the carpentry they make and repair boats; there are sailing and kayaking schools; and a large park that can host events in the middle of a green space - something very rare in Venice.
