The island is famous worldwide for the colourful houses and the traditional art of the lace handwork.

The statue of Baldassarre Galuppi, called “il Buranello”, looks at the square where there’s also the church St. Martino, with its wonderful fresco of the Crucifixion by Gian Battista Tiepolo. There you find also the Lace-Museum (open tuesday-sunday, from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm).

You must taste the Bussolà, the traditional cookie, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
