Duke Tassilo lll of Bavaria founded the Benedictine Convent of San Candido in the 9th century, but in 1143 construction was started to convert the Convent into the Collegiate Church. The Church was completed near the end of the 13th century and the bell tower was finished by 1326.The Collegiate Church of San Candido in Italy is not an ornate structure, in fact it has the solid look of a Medieval fortress, however the large frescoes in the dome depicting the Creation are most impressive.
