St Girolamo Church

Chiesa di San GirolamoClose to the Clock Tower, St Girolamo’s bell tower can be seen. The church is the most ancient in town. Its foundation is usually traced back to 1261, where an eremite’s cell was erected in the Borgo dei Tedeschi as it was then  called.
A crucifix in cedar-wood of the XV century is preserved inside the church.  A myth is told that when sailors taking it to St Lorenzo’s through rio St Girolamo reached site of the church the boat was inexplicably unable to continue.

The crucifix, it was said, had chosen its resting place and the church was built here.
Next to the crucifix, a 1600s altar was erected by the Rosary confraternity, with a statue of the Virgin Mary that had a variety of 24 different vestments in which to be dressed.
Four paintings hang on the left wall, with plaster-decorated frames. They are the work of A. Mancini representing St Nicolò’s Life.  The external façade is in Istrian marble with four ionic columns holding a tympanum from 1758.
