There's so much cool stuff to see and photograph on Torcello. The stone chair above is called The Throne of Attilla because of a legend that it belonged to Attilla the Hun, whose rampage through the mainland drove the early citizens of Torcello into the lagoon. More than likely, it was a magistrate's chair but the name has stuck. It's supposed to be good luck to sit in it and I even overheard one tourist tell her friend that if you sit in it, you'll be married within a year. I didn't test it out. :)
A beautiful fragment on the side of Santa Fosca~
Outside the museum, there's a long wall with all kinds of reliefs, stone fragments, saints and such. And this wild guy, whoever he is~
I'm intriqued by this thing, whatever it is. I've looked in a bunch of books and asked several Venice experts but no luck so far. There's writing on the lower part and a relief of some kind of animal on top, peeking through the moss.
A Madonna and Child~
An angel above a doge hat~
Even the marble stairs to the cathedral are beautiful~
