...coming from the nearby Po Delta. It is less glamorous and less well known than the other cities of the Veneto region but is still an artistic, cultural and environmental treasure trove. Donà Tower, the emblem of the city, and Mozza Tower, the remains of a medieval fortress, are some of the monuments to be found. The elegant palaces Roncale and Roverella, in the city centre, are a reminder of the Serenissima Republic; the latter is the home of the gallery of the Accademia dei Concordi, one of the most important academies of the Veneto region that also hosts contemporary exhibitions. The Sanctuary of the Beata Vergine del Soccorso (The Holy Virgin of Help), called the Rotonda is of particular interest because of its octagonal shape. The Rotonda is next to the Longhena bell tower. A visit to the Museo dei Grandi fiumi (Museum of Big Rivers) is a must. This museum is dedicated to the history of the people who have always lived in this area suspended between land and water and which has always been subject to the rhythms of the Po River and the nearby sea.
