Torcello, an Island of Venice


The cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta is in Piazza Torcello. Inside the cathedral, a large mosaic representing the Universal Judgement decorates the interior walls.
The Museum of Torcello contains significant archaeological finds from the Roman, Byzanthine and medieval periods; near there is the so-called Sedia di Attila, a throne that once was the seat for the Administrator of justice.
