Chiesa di S.Maria degli Angeli

The Church of Santa Maria degli Angeli preserves a small design of a Christ carrying the Cross inserted in the left side altar and surrounded by numerous silver ex-votos. Tradition has it that it was found in front of the entrance of the monastery on 6 August 1509 protecting the nuns from the troops of Maximilian of Habsburg who were about to attack the city. The chronicles also tell that thanks to his intercession the convent was saved on many other occasions such as during the floods of 1564 and 1748, or the fire that broke out in the structure in 1777.

The same altar also preserves the altarpiece by Jacopo da Ponte, called the Bassano, The flood of Colmeda, the stream that flows near the convent, completed in 1576 and commissioned to the artist after the storm of 27 July 1564. Opposite, the nineteenth-century altar displays a painting entitled Ecce Agnus Dei painted by Cesare Vecellio in 1581 with Saint John the Baptist in the foreground.

In the presbytery the walls are decorated by many paintings by painters from Feltre such as the sixteenth-century Pietro Marascalchi and Lorenzo Luzzo, Antonio Lazzarini from Belluno who in the second decade of the eighteenth century painted the Escape into Egypt and the Presentation at the Temple and contemporary artists such as the two banners of Romano Ocri, a raku ceramic panel by Fulvia Celli and a series of stained glass windows by the Flemish artist Raph Huet, made from 1987 to 1992.

The sacristy, which can be visited only if accompanied by a guide, is dominated by the ancient altar in carved and gilded wood with a face of dead Christ and with the altarpiece of the first half of the eighteenth century by Girolamo Turro representing the Madonna degli Angeli; The same artist painted for the convent two other paintings preserved today at the Civic Museum of Feltre. Also interesting is the Chair of the Abbess, carved in the seventeenth century and the sixteenth-century statues of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, a blessing God the Father, a Baroque tabernacle, a Crucifix and a 15th-century sculpture of Saint Clare.

The church is open every day from 8:00 to 12:00 and from 15:00 to 18:00.
