The city and the historic centre

The territory of the municipality of Grado stretches between the mouth of the Isonzo and the Adriatic Sea and the lagoon of the same name, from Porto Buso to Fossalon. The main town is located on the larger island and is divided into numerous areas and districts: Gravo vecia, Borgo de fora, Isola della Schiusa, Colmata, Centro, Squero, Città Giardino,Valle Goppion, Grado Pineta and Primero.

This island bears the tradition of an ancient fishing village and preserves an old town centre that is a labyrinth of narrow streets and small squares; what makes it special compared to other seaside destinations is the Y-shaped harbour that represents the town's living room, the tree-lined avenues with Art Nouveau villas, the romantic promenade that seems to be suspended between earth and sky and the sanctuary of Barbana, set in a fascinating lagoon to be explored.

The lagoon comprises about 30 islands and covers an area of about 90 square kilometres while, inland, the municipality of Grado includes the hamlet of Fossalon, a fertile agricultural area created by land reclamation in the first half of the 20th century, and Boscat.
