Archaeological Park of Pieve Santa Maria in Padovetere

Found in the Valle Pega are the remains of the ancient paleo-Christian church of Santa Maria in Padovetere, an ecclesial structure dating back to the VI century AD
Archaeological Park of  Pieve Santa Maria in Padovetere

Its foundations came to light during the land reclamation work that led to many of Comacchio’s Lagoons being drained. The Santa Maria in Padovetere archaeological site, surrounding the church, is definitely an important landmark for tourist itineraries, as it is the oldest Christian place of worship in the Comacchio area.

A new excavation campaign was launched in 2015, and, along with other important finds, a wooden boat about 15 meters in length has been brought to light in the area, and can be dated to between the Roman period and the early Middle Ages.
