The history of Grado is closely interwoven with those of two illustrious cities: Aquileia – Grado was born as its seaside suburb and Venice – for which Grado is a “mother” for having handed down the prestigious title of Patriarchate.

During the fifth and sixth century, Grado became a “fortress”, the castrum gradense, in order to be protected from the barbarian invasions and gave shelter to the bishops of Aquileia who built marvellous churches here that are still the centre of the religious life: the rest of that period can still be seen in the architecture of the historic centre.

What to visit in the historic centre: Basilica di Sant’Eufemia, Battistero e Lapidario, Santa Maria delle Grazie, Piazza del Municipio, the Port of Grado and the sea wall.
