Overview of Lazzaretto
A stunning pentagonal structure, the Lazzaretto is an 18th century building erected on a manmade island. With the motive of serving as a quarantine station and Leprosarium, this structure housed those with the Hansen's disease. Over time, the structure served various purposes like serving as a military citadel in the 19th century. There are three bridges that connect this artificial island to the mainland. Today, one can visit this place for various local cultural activities, festivals and events.
