This was founded in 730-735. In 899 it was sacked by the Magyars but St. Mary’s Abbey rose again and was fortified in the 10th century. In 967 Emperor Otto I donated the abbey to Rodoaldo, the patriarch of Aquileia. From 1441 - 1786 the abbey became a commendam and in 1818 the religious jurisdiction returned to the diocese of Concordia and the abbey was finally re-established in 1921.
The first walls were created in the 10th century, after the devastation caused by the Magyars. The facade is dominated by a fresco representing the lion of St. Mark, dating back to the late 15th century. Below it is a bas-relief with the crest of cardinal Grimani, to the left is a fresco where the Grimani crest is repeated and to the right there is a fresco of a crest with a cross, whose ownership is unknown.
Beyond the entry tower you access a large courtyard that has recently been paved, onto which all the main buildings of the abbey complex look. There is also a brick bell tower here.

Nowadays, going to a fairground is a bit like stepping into a time machine and suddenly finding yourself taken back to the years when playing outside was a totally absorbing experience for children.
Fairs are filled with spellbinding sensations. Children take away lifelong memories of the colourful lights, the music, and the sweet smell of chocolate and candy floss.
Are you on holiday in Bibione! Would you like to take your children to a fairground where they can have a whale of a time, just like you did when you were little? Luna Park Adriatico in Bibione is the place for you! It spans a huge 12,000 m² and you can take your pick from no fewer than 65 rides!
What will you find at the fairground?
There are rides for children of all ages. For little ones, there’s a traditional merry-go-round with horses, a little pirate ship, canoes, mini motorbikes, aeroplanes, a train, mini bumper cars, a slide and many more fun activities that kids can enjoy by themselves as their parents keep a close eye on them. Then there are the attractions for adults, such as flying cages, go-karts and (if you’re brave enough!) the fire bat. In addition, teenagers and adults can put their skills to the test at the target-shooting, hook-a-duck, wheel of fortune and ring tossing stands. Then there are attractions for people of all ages, such as the ghost train, big wheel, hall of mirrors and rollercoaster.
Where is it?
Luna Park Adriatico is in Piazza Mercato on Via del Sagittario. You can get there by walking along the main roads in the town. Alternatively, there’s a large car park for those who choose to drive there!

 Portogruaro town hall was erected in two different periods. The central part was built in 1265. Initially it reunited the original and free citizens of Portogruaro in a general assembly and later became the headquarters for meetings of the Maggio Consiglio, (The May Council) with 15 aristocratic members of 25 years of age or more.
This appointed the Podestà (a rare privilege for a Municipality, granted by Bishop Tisone da Camino). In 1371 the Palace caught fire and between 1372 and 1380 a new loggia was built with Ghibelline battlements.
The two lateral wings were built in the 16th century. In 1848 the building was partly decorated in “questionable Gothic style” and in 1887 the prison was moved to the ground floor of its new headquarters in via Seminario.


Details
The building dates back to the 18th century, although one particular document attached to the baptism registry hints at a pre-existing church dedicated to the Blessed Virgin. It has an atmospheric facade embellished by an harbour and by two characteristic grooved oval windows.
Inside is a statue of the virgin by the artist Valentino Besarel. The dedication of the church recalls the proclamation of the dogma of the immaculate conception by Pope Pius IX, on 8th December 1854.

The ancient church of Fossalta, founded around the year 1000, was demolished in 1893. The new church was designed in 1892 by engineer Federico Berchet, followed by architect Domenico Rupolo, who completed the work.
The “domo de Fossalta” (Fossalta cathedral) was completed in 1896. There is still a great deal of work to finish and over the years the two large marble altars of the Holy Virgin of the Belt and of St. Biagio and the altar were placed in the lateral transepts.
The completion of the new main altar, also designed by Rupolo, completed the choir stalls and the upper part of the apse, right above the Lugugnana Canal, together with the construction of two lateral sacristies.

Aqua Splash was Italy’s first ever water park. It was founded by a young businessman named Sergio Vacondio, who had a background in travelling shows. Having visited American water parks in the 1980s, he realized how much potential they had.
A big focus on families and constantly endeavouring to cater to the tastes of young people are the two key ingredients behind the success of the initiative, which has now been passed on to the next generation of the founding family without losing any of its appeal.
If you’ve never been before, don’t miss out on a trip to the park during your holiday!

The typical Mills of St. Andrew (named after the town district in which they are located) are part of Portogruaro’s ancient heritage, which are highlighted by the setting of the historic centre. They were cited in a papal bull of 1186 as “Portum de Gruario cum molendinis”. They were initially used for milling and today have been converted into an art gallery.
They host exhibition openings and prestigious cultural evenings.

The arch, which was rebuilt in 2014 after years of relative abandonment, is known as the Arco del Fondaco “de’ Todeschi” and represents Portogruaro’s commercial vocation and, in general, the town’s fundamental role at the time of the Venetian Republic. The original building had three naves divided into two courtyards and was located in the San Giovanni area. The Arco del Fondaco is made of large blocks of Istrian stone, surmounted by a trabeation with the lion of St. Mark in the centre. In 2014 it was restored to its ancient splendour and placed in Piazza Marinetti, in one of the historic entrances to the town.

This was designed by the architect Balestra and was the property of the Mocenigo family until the eve of the First World War, then passing into the hands of the Mayer family from Trieste, to the Sinigallia and the Gandolfi. To the left of the entrance is a tall rice stack, powered by a wheel placed on an artificial canal, which is now no longer in use. Today the building is the property of the ATER, which has carried out extensive restoration and has transformed it into a private residence.

The Museum was founded in 1885 and named the National Museum of Concordia to underline its close relationship with the nearby archaeological area of Concordia Sagittaria. It was headed by Dario Bertolini, who first organised the archaeological material in the building. Most of the materials are relics discovered between 1873 and 1882 in the vast archaeological area of Concordia Sagittaria; above all the burial site from the late Roman Age.
