Chiesa di Santa Fosca (Torcello)

The church, in the form of a Greek cross with three naves with a prolonged arm in the three apses. The central dome was not built and was substituted by a wooden roof. The building dates from the 11th or 12 century. Its octagonal perimeter is surrounded by a portico with Veneto-Byzantine columns and capitals. Inside is buried the body of the martyr St. Fosca. Near the church are the two palazzi which house the Estuary Museum, which contains precious objects found during diggings to investigate the origin of the island and other which come from Altino.
