The sixteenth-century Tezon Grande, more than 100 meters long with extraordinary documents that demonstrate the life lived by the alleged lychees who had to stay them together with the goods for the famous 40 days. Too bad for the little houses placed along the walls and destroyed over the years. It is absolutely worth visiting the island also in the path outside the walls,Sin for the little care of the park,unfortunately it also put the wind that a few days ago destroyed some plants of high stem.

It is worth a visit both for the landscape aspect and for the exhibits present. On the island there is the only real well with the coat of arms of the Winged Lion of all Venice, saved from the destructive fury that arrived with Napoleon. We hope that in the future those who have to allow to enhance this place more.
Beautiful island with a dark history. The archeological preservation is very impressive.
The island can only be visited in summer and on Saturdays and Sundays thanks to a voluntary association (Ekos). The visit consists of the outer tour of the wall (from which you have an enchanting view of the surrounding salt marshes) and the visit of the interior that contains the beautiful large tezon with an interesting small museum. It's really worth it!
