An extraordinary place of history and beauty. I attended a service, which was a special treat and also toured the historic monuments in the cloister area. A must to walk around (when there's no service in progress) and soak up the history, even if you're...More

Visiting Grado, don’t just spend time in the bars And beaches! The mosaics in this dedicated church and the origin is really overwhelming, also having just visited Aquilea. However, the calm and authentic atmosphere is worth the visit as well.

It hasn't been the first time we visited the Basilica. San't Eufemia is or was a well known Saint in this region. More famous is the Saint Eugenia cathedral in Rovinj, Istria. Anyway, the Romanesque church is beautiful due to its simplicity, mosaics and frescos...More

This is the larger of two very early Christian churches side by side in the old town section of Grado. It has a wonderful fresco in the apse above the altar, but the best features are the floor mosaics which are in astounding condition and...More

Nice place to visit, but nothing special, the church is in really good condition. For children it might be boring.
