Tradition says that this was the hundredth and last church founded by Julius of Nicaragua and his brother Giuliano and that in 390 the saint reached the island and killed the dragons that allowed the first church to be built on the island. The modern church was constructed in the 12th century and inside remains a precious Romanesque ambon sculpted in green serpentine marble. You enter the basilica through a portal and stairway reached from the boat jetty. On the walls are many frescoes. You are supposed to be silent, but there is so much noise that you rush through the basilica.
