Located in the middle of the old town amongst narrow lane ways and off the main square you'll located this old Roman church. The night we visited was a piano player playing inside which was quaint. It's a church like many more nearby but worth a quick look.

this church - and the whole surrounding - has an incredibly captivating atmosphere. the basilica of romanic architecture, dating back to the 16th century, is a place of deep peace and rest if you allow for it.

And the Basilica di Sant'Eufemia in the heritage town center of Grado is worth at least a honourable mention. A severe church on the outside; the Basilica is impressive on the inside. No specific tourist spot, as Grado is more sought out for its waterfront and beach, the Basilica is quiet inside. To be admired are the pulpit, altar and... More

It is a nice place to visit. I really like the spirit of the city and it's great place for weekend runaway especially in spring. In the center of the town there is an old Basilica which is interesting to visit and just around the corner there is street with some nice restaurants.

This is a beautiful VI century church built on the rest of a Roman building. The interior is severe. There are beautiful Roman mosaics on the floor and the columns along the nave come clearly from more ancient structures. There is a fantastic "ambone" the platform from which the priest preached, in Moresque style. The mosaic pavement around the main... More
