ARCHAELOGICAL SITES

Antiche mura

Antiche Mura (Ancient Walls) Archaeological Area

The area, where the church of Santa Maria Assunta once stood, has been the subject of numerous studies since the nineteenth century. The priceless remains that emerged from the area were severely damaged by both world wars, but can still be visited.

Torre del Caligo

Torre Caligo

This tower was located on the banks of the Caligo canal, hence its name. The building dates back to the 9th century A.D. and was probably built on the ruins of an earlier monument from the Imperial Era. The tower was used to defend the lagoon, but also to collect toll payments for goods that were transported along the channel. Only the base remains visible.
