This island was the first settlement of the lagoon. Here you can visit the Cathedral St. Maria Assunta, built around the X century, which present a great mosaic of the Last Judgement in byzantine style.

The Church Santa Fosca, there nearby, dates back to the XII century and its greek-cross ground plot is a clear example of byzantine influence on the venetian architecture.

On the main square of Torcello you can see the “Attila’s Throne”, a big stone seat maybe reserved to the magistrates who administered justice.

The “Devil’s Bridge” conserve the original architecture without parapet, traditional of all the bridge in Venice.
