Church of Santa Maria Assunta

Recommended
First built in the 7C, Santa Maria Assunta church was transformed in the 9C and 11C. This very sober building has an extremely rich interior 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 overall effect is simply magnificent. The 11C bell tower offers a beautiful view over the lagoon.
