Vignole is actually formed by the two distinct islands, connected by a bridge. Like Sant'Erasmo, it houses a scanty population, most of which work in the agriculture field. The eastern area is a military zone, housing barracks of the Lagunari regiment. Two bridge connected this sector to the nearby Sant'Andrea Island, home to the eponymous fort.
In the 7th century two tribunes from Torcello built here small church dedicated to St. John the Baptist and St. Christine. The few other points of interest include the small church of St. Eurosia, sided by a small bell tower.
