History

Santa Maria Assunta was Venice's first cathedral erected in 639, and then expanded in 1008. The interior mosaic walls and floor were added in the 15th century, followed by another restoration in 1646. In the 1800's, the Austrians repaired the church, adding many Baroque elements, which were later removed in a 1930's restoration.
