From its privileged position in the heart of the Bacino di San Marco, the Island of San Servolo welcomes visitors seeking to immerse themselves in the discovery of its history and its wonders. An old Benedictine monastery, then convent, San Servolo became a military hospital in the eighteenth century and was then a psychiatric hospital for men until 1978. The Province of Venice, which has maintained ownership since then, launched a major recuperation project in the 1990s, with the goal of restoring the buildings to their original splendour and, most of all,  returning a cultural heritage site of enormous importance to the city. 
Today, visitors can get to know the sites and history of the island, appreciating the historic pharmacy, the library and the museum, and deepening their knowledge of a little-known aspect of Venetian history through the fascinating Museo della del Manicomio, which in a simple, clear way explains the medical approach to mental illness over the centuries. 
At the end of your visit, it is a must to take a walk in the magnificent garden, featuring flora unique in Venetian territory and dotted with works of contemporary art that transform the space into an outdoor museum. Before leaving the island, be sure to visit the splendid lookouts, which enchant visitors with breathtaking views out over the whole Bacino di San Marco, creating unforgettable memories.
