Church of Saint Fosca (Torcello)

This little octagonal church, built in the 11th C., has a beautiful portico with raised archways in a Venetian Byzantine style. The sacred sobriety of the interior, the harmony of the portico, the rustic look of the whole, the impression that the place is abandoned, all of this gives it a charm that is very touching.
