Chiesa di san Giorgio

Erected in the Byzantine period, with reliable records dating back to the year 964, the church dedicated to the saint stands in Piazza San Giorgio; it would later be proclaimed the "Santuario della Patria" (Sanctuary of the Homeland), as it housed the standard of the Republic that was delivered with great solemnity to the captain general of the armada when the fleet was sent into battle.The church was rebuilt in the 1500s and again at the start of the 17th century. In its elliptical interior, visitors can admire the "Martyrdom of St. George" by Luca Cambiaso, located in the choir.
