Church of Santa Maria Assunta

First built in the 7C, the church was transformed in the 9C and 11C and later given a portico. This very sober building has an extremely rich decor that includes a beautiful iconostasis, and most notably, superb bright Byzantine-style mosaics depicting the Annunciation and the Last Judgment (on the west wall). The ensemble is simply beautiful. The Romanesque bell tower offers a beautiful view over the lagoon.
