  • The beautiful church of s. Cassiano, patron of Comacchio. Well worth a visit.

  • It lost the original 8th-century church built in Romanesque style with Gothic stratifications of 1200 due to its demolition and rebuilding the 17th century which can be seen today. Particularly valuable and relatively curious is the base of the bell tower that has stood the collapse that has been resting – limiting the height-the new structure. You can devote a short visit.

  • The first cathedral was built in the year 708 under Bishop Vincent and stood in the same location. It was built in Romanesque style and had three naves supported by marble columns whose capitals bearing the effigy of aquatic flounder, which is the emblem of the city, until 1200, when it was modified in Gothic style and remained there until 1659. Then it was decided for its demolition for a new Cathedral on which work began on 25 March. Passed over 35 years, was consecrated on 4/12/1740 in keeping with the original design of the architect Angel Cerutti that conceived in Baroque style. On 13 October del1961, the Cathedral was elevated to the dignity of a minor basilica by Pope John XXIII. The façade is made of bricks, except for some inpietra in Istria. Adjacent to the cathedral stands the Bell Tower, designed by architect Giorgio Ditches, built in 1751 but ruined the ground a few years later because it was too slim, in 1757. It was subsequently rebuilt up to half share in 1868 on the huge base of the old Bell Tower, remained unscathed from the crash. The internal structure of the Cathedral has a nave with side chapels within 6 of which are valuable paintings. Of particular interest is the apse is decorated with a marble altar of 1700 with winged angels and the wooden statue of the Patron Saint San Cassiano. All around the apse also runs a choir in a double row of stalls. Above the entrance, there is the organ, built in Modena.
