Lusia, located on the right bank of the Adige, is known for the production of crunchy salad certified with the “PGI” (Protected Geographical Indication) denomination.

In the historic center – opposite the modern parish church of S.S. Vito e Modesto, built after the destruction of the ancient church due to the bombings of 1945 – there is a curious marble column, which is said to have arrived in Lusia in 1400 from Constantinople.

Just outside the historic centre, at the base of the high embankment of the Adige and very close to the remains of the ancient church, you can see a recently restored isolated tower: it is what remains, after the bombing in 1945, of the 12th century Este castle, later transformed into a residence by the Venetian family of Morosini.
