We have chosen a different name for each room of our Relais Santa Corona in Vicenza: today we are talking about the SANTO STEFANO ROOM
The church of Santo Stefano is a religious building in Vicenza, in Italy, built in the Baroque style between the end of the 17th and the first half of the 18th century on the site of one of the oldest chapels in the city. Given the antiquity of the cult of the martyr Stephen, Sottani believes it probable that a chapel in his honor was built in Vicenza in the earliest times of Christianity. However, the first certain mention relating to a chapel dedicated to the saint is contained in a bull of Pope Urban III of 1186, with which he confirms the donations that the Bishop of Vicenza Pistore had made to the canonicals of the cathedral the previous year. In 1692 Count Ascanio Thiene – expressing his wish to be buried in the church of the Theatine fathers, in the chapel of San Gaetano, wrapped in his white cloak as a member of the Confraternity of the Gonfalone – left 1000 ducats to be used for the construction of a new church. The blessing of the foundation stone took place on 25 June 1695 with the specific purpose of honoring Saint Cajetan Thiene – since 1672 proclaimed by the “very grave Council of 150” new co-patron of Vicenza together with Saint Vincent – and to commemorate his canonization, so much so that the church was named after these two saints.
Our Relais Santa Corona is very close to the church of Santo Stefano, just a few meters on foot.
Relais Santa Corona in Vicenza, much better than a hotel.
The event that will be held by the Fiera di Vicenza will be divided into two large themed areas: one dedicated to the apartment, with furniture and accessories for indoor and outdoor use, and one of the services of living comfort, such as interior fittings, buildings, impiantistica, calore and energetic risparmio. A thematic raggruppamento fruit of a true and proper restyling that has renewed the 2015 edition of SpazioCasa to render the visit even more simple and rich in spunti. I proposed the various arrangement of the most classic ones to the most innovative ones with complements of the furniture, accessories and decorative elements. Saranno presenti anche artisani capaci di realizzare mobili su misura per tutte le esigenze oltre agli stand aziendali. “Spazio Casa” proposes a modern house with all its energy efficiency systems, even more sorgent with innovative and rivestimenti interiors and sterni eco-compatible and antibatteric, icon of design and unique light art, in step with the evolution of concetto di abitare.
The Fiera di Vicenza is accessible in 10 minutes by car from our Relais Santa Corona.
The area on which Vicenza stands has been inhabited for at least 2500 years and under the elegant and Palladian appearance of the city ancient memories are hidden that few are aware of. This tour will open the archaeological area located under the Cathedral which reveals itself as a real palimpsest of the history of Vicenza from the Roman to the early Christian and medieval times. The location is very close to our Relais Santa Corona, just a couple of minutes away on foot.
STAGES: The tour is made up of two parts, a first introductory part “on the surface” and a second where you will descend to a depth of about 6 meters, under the cathedral.
