The Basilica

We enjoyed our visit there and spent quite a bit of time in the museum as well as the older church on the other side of the baptistry, the Sanctuary of Santa Maria delle Grazie.

Very beautiful setting and nice murals on the ceiling- if you are looking for ornate decoration inside you will be disappointed but there are nice mosaics on the floor.

Lovely church in the middle of old Grado is definately worth a visit. Just enjoy the atmosphere. There is a beatifuly decorated mosaic inside and some of the old walls are shown bellow the base. You can sit and see.

This is a really nice church placed in the old town of Grado. Inside the church is wide and you can notice the antiquity of the building:roman . It's very impressive

There is nothing to dislike about this atmospheric, ancient and beautiful church. It's dark inside but that just makes the place even more special. It gives a window into the early Christian world that was building these soaring churches in the middle of the Dark Ages.

Beautiful church dating back to the early Christian age. Touching in its simplicity, it should be admired in different hours of the day to appreciate the changing of lights. Inspiring atmosphere.

Its a must see place , especially the byzantine floor tiles . five hundred years old and in such good condition makes me want to know what they are stuck down with. Its a simple church , very serene , not much decoration to speak of , but its not needed here . Out the back is the ancient cemetery... More

We took a break from Grado and took a boat trip which took in the lagoons, a fish farm and Bascilica di Sant'Eufemia. The afternoon was a lovely relaxing trip taking in the sights and views. The island was very peaceful and picturesque, the mosaics were lovely as were the stained glass windows.

You must see this. It's free entry and is so old and beautiful it is well worth stepping out of the sun for 15 minutes to look round. Very peaceful.
