Monastero di San Placido Calonerò

SP35, Messina

The Monastery of San Placido Calonerò was founded by a community of Benedictine monks (chronologically considered the second Benedictine cenoby by importance) and dedicated to San Placido Calonerò, primitive patron of Messina. Today the abbey complex has a rectangular planimetric system and two beautiful cloisters. The structures identify the three main phases of its architectural history that can be traced back to their respective styles: Swabian, attributable to Svevo Urso-Vinciguerra Castle; Renaissance, which is seen in the two large porch cloisters and in the series of environments that gravitate around them; contemporary, resulting from continuous adaptation of the religious building to agricultural school.
