In this chapter we will discuss one of the most beautiful and fascinating cities in the province of Venice, the famous Concordia Sagittaria.

Concordia Sagittaria, founded in 42 BC, was an extraordinary Roman military colony with the name of Julia Concordia, located a few kilometers from Portogruaro, in the province of Venice. This wonderful city is located at the intersection of two important Roman communication routes, the Via Annia, which connected Aquileia, Concordia, Altino and Padua, until it reaches the Adria city and the Via Postumia, which connected the two main Roman ports in the north Italy, from Genoa to Aquileia.

Concordia Sagittaria

It is an important passageway for the famous Venetian seaside resorts, which from Bibione to Lido di Jesolo annually hosts thousands of tourists from all over the world. Portogruaro retains traces of the walls of the ancient city, traces of urban structures, such as the theater, the forum, the thermal baths and part of a bridge, on which Via Annia passed.

Concordia Sagittaria

The term "Sagittaria" was recently attributed to it with the aim of remembering that, in Roman times, there was an arrow factory for the Roman army, ("sagitta" which in the Latin language means "arrow").

Concordia Sagittaria actively participated in the life of the Roman Empire and was involved in wars to counter the invasions of the Huns of Attila.

Concordia Sagittaria

To visit are the Romanesque-Byzantine Baptistery, which houses a fresco that differs from the Byzantine iconography, the sixteenth-century Municipal Palace with its museum rooms, the Cathedral of Santo Stefano Protomartire of the tenth century, which preserves below a paleochristian complex with funeral fences, paved courtyards and mosaic floors, the remains of a Roman bridge built in the Augustan era and the city walls and the remains of a thermal complex, in via delle Terme. In short, a stay in these areas means immersing yourself in the history and culture of real cities of art.
