Basilica di Santa Maria delle Grazie

Campo Dei Patriarchi, 5, Grado, (Gorizia)

Paleo-Christian Basilica of Santa Maria delle Grazie overlooks Campo dei Patriarichi, a few steps from Baptistery and Basilica of Santa Eufemia. The first building dates back to the mid-fifth century and is now witnessed by mosaic floor of the right aisle and the apse, decorated with geometric motifs. The church was then rebuilt, at a raised level of about one meter, at the end of the 6th century by Patriarch Elias. The stone and brick facade is softened by a trifora. The interior, with three naves, has a strong vertical thrust and is divided by two rows of five marble columns of different origins. In the left aisle there is a wooden statue of Madonna delle Grazie.
