The present Churches of Santa Lucia and the Church of San Vito have closely coincided in the past and have an interesting history. In the second half of the 14th century, a new public palace was built in Treviso, near the apse of the church of San Vito and the neighboring chapel of Santa Maria delle Carceri (which served as a place of worship for prisoners of nearby prisons). On the first floor of the imposing building was the City Council meeting room, while on the lower floor the only room was divided into three irregular naves (the middle one was narrower than the side ones), with four spans covered with cross-shaped vaults. This ground floor space was allotted to the church and dedicated to Santa Lucia on December 13, 1389, in commemoration of the day the city of Treviso was annexed to the Republic of Venice. The area above the church of Santa Lucia was sold to Monte di Pietà in 1498, due to the increased operational needs of the institute. In 1561, a further extension of the Monte di Pietà above the church of San Vito was approved, in exchange for a proper restoration of the religious building. This architectural renovation gave the complex of the churches of San Vito and Santa Lucia its present shape, on that occasion the chapel of Santa Maria delle Carceri was turned into a sacristy of two churches, and the name Santa Maria delle Carceri became Santa Lucia. It is extremely interesting church. The spiritual harmony of the place, shrouded in darkness, welcomes the faithful and the visitor to the church of Santa Lucia, dedicated to a cult of the Syracusan saint woman whose remains have been kept in Venice since 1204. She was martyred on 13 December 304 during the persecutions of the emperor Diocletian. The presbytery is magnificent and enchants with its beauty and spirituality. The main altar preserves an original rostrum dating back to the end of the 14th century. The high-relief, in Istrian stone, depicts Saint Lucia crowned, bearing her vase with her eyes and her palm, symbol of her martyrdom. To the left of the presbytery is the walled bas-relief with St. Christopher and St. James the Greater, and above the Crucifixion of Jesus. The work, dated 1437, presents the rather rare iconography of the diptych with two standing figures facing each other within an architecture arched. Located next to the entrance, the chapel of the Crucifix preserves the fresco of the Madonna del Paveio, framed by the fragment of angels painted by Tommaso da Modena in the first half of the fourteenth century. The Crucifixion of Jesus is the focal point of the entire decoration, which develops from the inside of the arch to the back wall, and is divided into squares arranged asymmetrically, within which scenes from the cycle of the Passion of Christ appear.

If you are a fan of the churches around Italy I definitely recommend a stop here. While not the biggest or most austentatious, it has the gravitas of an old place of worship. There is some history posted in English and explanation of some of the art and it's meaning which is always nice, and fairly rare to find.

Definitely the most interesting historical attraction in Treviso - well worth the wait for its opening. Beautiful painted ceilings.

There is no shortage of impressive churches in Italy and Treviso is no exception. Even then I can especially recommend visiting the Santa Lucia church in Treviso and be impressed with its beauty and serenity.

It's small, it's paint with frescos which remind you of the sky and the elevated thoughts. Only opened in the morning, so put in your agenda first !!

We went inside looking for a quiet place to sit and light a candle. This was surprising inside and had some lovely frescos and had the tomb of Santa Lucia too. The whole church had a great atmosphere.

Lots of beautiful frescos in the church. It has a very pleasant energy. If one sits in a pew there is plenty to view, in all directions.

The church is part of a complex so it really doesn't look like a church from the outside. Inside the church has many additions over the years - a little bit of this & a little bit of that. It is quite warm and prayerful. Don't Miss.
