Abbey of Praglia

Here the arboreal vegetation is xerophilous (preferring dry climates) and it is represented by the oak tree species (Quercus pubescens), and by the orniello (Fraxinus ornus). Proceeding, we abandon the woods in order to cross an area cultivated from vines and olive groves, until arriving to the place called the Casa La Busa dell'Oro finishing the trail near a capital. Now the itinerary turns left and follows an old white communal road, where we can see the recent works for the regulation of rain waters. After a steep descent we get to the Abbey; here the trail superimposes to cart roads used by the countrymen to cultivate corn and vine. We follow all of the Abbey’s perimeter until closing the loop going back to the parking.
The territory and the itinerary "Anello del Giubileo"
In the Park's territory there are some of the most important religious sites of the Province of Padua, important centres of pilgrimage and convention venues: the Sanctuary of the Beata Vergine della Salute of Monteortone and the Monastery of San Daniele, both of the communal territory of Abano Terme and the Benedictine Abbey of Praglia in the municipality of Teolo. The trail of the Jubilee had been refurbished at the beginning of the new millennium, that from the parking of the Abbey of Praglia it elevates on an easy trail on the Lonzina Mountain, closing a loop rich of panoramic views on the Euganian territory and on the plain on the North; successively, also the trails of the Ortone Mountain and Colle di San Daniele were refurbished. The “Anello del Giubileo” is a thematic itinerary and can be completed thanks to the presence of cycle ways and unpaved roads, that are not difficult, in order to complete the track that links the two main trails - Jubilee, Ortone Mountain and San Daniele, it is however necessary to pass also on busy roads, for this reason we recommend to be very careful.
