The church dedicated to St. Dominic and the annexed buildings are what remains of the original Dominican monastery, documented since 1272. After its secularisation in 1785, the complex was deeply altered.
The Gothic structure of the church preserves 14th century frescoes, a choir with rococo stuccoes and the altar piece by Guercino (1655). The St. John Chapel is entirely frescoed by the school of Giotto (1330). In the cloister, 14th century paintings and frescoes by F. Pacher and S. Müller (15th-16th century).
The rebuilt wing of the former convent hosts the seat of the State Conservatory of Music and the City Gallery (Galleria civica/Stadtgalerie).
