Description

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.
