Concordiese archaeological area

Concordiese archaeological area

The Archaeological Area under the Cathedral is located in Concordia Sagittaria (VE), and develops below the Cathedral of Santo Stefano and the Cardinal Costantini town square. It preserves Roman remains and the well-known early Christian monumental complex.

Relating to the Roman area are a large paved stretch of the Via Annia, the ancient consular road, which connected Adria to Aquileia, and part of the commercial warehouses ( horrea ). On the southern side of the road is the paleochristian ecclesial complex. It includes the Basilica Apostolorum , with three naves, entirely covered with a mosaic carpet and the trichora martyrum , a triapsidal building dedicated to the cult of martyrs. It was discovered and excavated several times starting from the 1950s. Its first layout dates back to the end of the 4th century AD and remained in use, with subsequent extensions and embellishments, until the late 6th century AD, when fires and floods decreed its end and abandonment.
