San Lazzaro degli Armeni
Armenian wedding ceremony was taking part in the monastery on San Lazzaro Island in Venice. It is a small island in the Venetian Lagoon that is a cultural treasure for Armenians. The monastery was built in 1717, and it is full of historical and religious gems. The monks of the monastery were producing historical manuscripts that became a famous collection all over the world. Napoleon was impressed by the work of the monks and encouraged their operation like an Academy. Another famous person that took interest on the island is an English poet Lord Byron. He spent some period of his life at San Lazzaro studying Armenian culture and language.
