Venezia città magica e misteriosa, città della cultura e dell'arte.
San Lazzaro Island hosts the Armenian monastery, today the only remaining convent in Venice, and an important centre of Armenian culture. It includes the church, the library and the museum. Archaeological finds of Armenian art are preserved in the museum, besides relics of such famous people as Lord Byron, a constant visitor to the island.
The picture gallery holds works of Veneto painters of the XVII-XVIII century and Armenian etchings and paintings of the XIX-XX century, while more than 200,000 volumes are kept in the library, amongst which precious Armenian manuscripts and miniatures.
