Includes also its beautiful legends. The premiere of "botasso de Saint Alban". It is said of this botticella (botasso) that in Burano, placed beside the relics of St Alban, was continuing to pour wine. The Murano envious the stole, but increased to Murano stopped giving wine, so why wasn't shooting and enjoyed by real owners was walled in the Church wall, visible above the Colonnade. The second says that San Donato killed a dragon with the simple sign of the cross, which is still the "dragon bones" are visible behind the altar a stone's throw from the Golden blaze of the mosaic of the Virgin ...

It is known for its twelfth century Byzantine mosaic pavement and is said to contain the relics of Saint Donatus of Arezzo as well as large bones behind the altar said to be the bones of a dragon slain by the saint. Church is just an amazing outside and inside. You can buy the small paper guide at the entrante and read the full description of the mosaico on the floor. No entrance fee but please pur an offer.
  • The artwork inside the church was impressive
  • One of the best architecture pieces in Murano. Nice, but nothing compared to Venice buildings.
