Create an itinerary including St. Euphemia's Basilica
In the historical center of the city, St. Euphemia's Basilica occupies the site of a much older religious building, which probably stood there until the 5th century. The look of today's building owes much to restorations made in the 17th and 18th centuries, with features that include a bell tower topped by the statue of Archangel Michael, considered one of the city's main symbols. The star attraction of the church remain the interior floor mosaics, well preserved and dating back to the 6th century.

  • Sant'Eufemia is a small early-christian basilica in Grado's old town. It is very beautiful and definitely one to visit when in Grado.

  • Ancient church in the heart of "Old Grado". The whole area is extremely worthy of a tour. There is a "labirinth" of narrow alleys and streets that open - almost suddenly - in small squares ("Calli"). Often there are restaurants, almost hidden but valuable.
  • A very old church, in the historical town Grado. I recommend visiting it, if you spend some time in this beautiful town. When you attend the holy mass on sunday you can hear the wonderful chore during the mass, mainly consisting of elder Grado citizens. A pleasant experience.
