"The Oldest Church of the Laguna"

Located at the Island of Torcello is Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta, an ancient church built following the Veneto-Byzantine style of architecture. This church dates back to the 11th Century and includes elements from 400 years earlier. The beautiful ambo on the left comprises of certain parts of the original 6th-century church. The luminosity of the mosaics that adorn the apse and, above all, the image of The Last Judgement on the west wall (which is rumored to be a reconstruction) are incredible. There is also a bell tower located close by to the church, which forms an important landmark of the lagoon. This is a great getaway from the otherwise bustling city of Venice, to enjoy some solitude and feel spiritual.
