The meaning of Bragora is still debated. Some say it goes back to the Greek agora, the piazza where the sovereign people used to make decisions, or bragola, meaning market place. Though the old name is still used, today the place is called Bandiera and Moro. Built in the 8th Century, subsequent additions and restorations (up to the 18th Century) have mixed up the architectural styles, and now there are only glimpses of its past glory. Inside is the magnificent Battesimo di Cristo by Cima da Conegliano.
