The town of Mirano is gifted with a wide cultural richness ranging from the Roman Age, which is still visible thanks to the Roman Reticulated Work, through the Age of the Venetian Republic of La Serenissima (in which Venice reached its highest splendour and power), to contemporary age.
Places and attractions to be visited:
- The numerous Venetian Villas (Mirano boasts a good 36 villas that were built between 17th and 18th century by many Venetian noblemen).
- The Monday Market hosting thousands of people every week. Here you can find everything, from clothes to local gastronomical specialities, from flowers to home furnishings.
- The Church of San Michele Arcangelo (St. Michael the Archangel) with its magnificent altar-piece of the 18th century created by Giambattista Tiepolo, besides the sculptures of Giuseppe Torretto, who was Antonio Canova’s master.
- The Park “XXV Aprile”, a real green lung of Mirano at the centre of the town. The park hosts two wonderful Villas (Villa Belvedere and Villa Morosini) and is overlooked by a charming castle that was built in 1800 by request of the nobleman Vincenzo Paolo Barzizza.
