Sail to other islands


Crevan island

 

The island Crevan is a few hundred meters from the northern edge of the island of S. Erasmo in that part of the lagoon where there are also the islands of Torcello, Burano and Mazzorbo. The island has an area of half a hectare and is currently privately owned.

Crevan remained uninhabited until the nineteenth century when, under the military protection project of the lagoon realized by the Austrians, it was established a small military garrison housed in a fort (1820). The military use ceased in the twentieth century when the island was bought by privates who undertaken to do a restoration of the fort.

The island belonged to the Panto family and is currently for sale.

In the Island is a "trabaccolo" launched in 1898 that is visible from the lagoon.
