Historical Highlights

Originally developed on the hill and the Goats ingranditasi at his feet in the Roman era, Feltre ebbe un notevole sviluppo sul lato sud, outside the walls. According to tradition, Already in the sixth century Alboino, King of the Lombards, I have founded the Castle, on the highest part of the hill, where he was a Roman tower lookout. The beginning of the construction of the walls can be traced back to 1179, year in which the bishop Drudo Camino intervened to move the city in a higher place, against Treviso, seeking control of the streets to the north; in 1220 the walls had to be built already. Under Venice, between 1488 and the 1502, the city was enhanced by a new city built close to the medieval, with the adoption of the technique of the walls terrapienate. The new defenses not escaped the destruction and conquest by the troops of Maximilian I of Habsburg. Hunted in the Imperials 1512, the town was rearranged by the Venetians, with only the value of toll barrier.

Inner-city

The city tour starts from the square Cambruzzi, place important because it represents, with the village of Tezze and that of All Saints, one of the offshoots of medieval cities located outside the walls of the twelfth century. Here you will find the Cathedral, with the adjacent Baptistery and the underground archaeological area, The entrance is accessible from the front of the church. Through the staircase by Victor Cesana, we arrive at Camp George, front door Pusterla, squeezed between the contromura Venetian Renaissance and opened in the late fifteenth century to connect the fortified village with the area “extra moenia” Cathedral. On the left you can see a tower house: In fact, the alignment of the buildings, whose construction dates back to the period after the War of Cambrai, was built on the foundations of the ancient walls. Going up the long ladder arcaded, you can make a short digression on the left, along the path to the Sentinel, above the Venetian walls of the end of '400. Continuing the climb instead, you reach the square of the Blade, with the Town Hall which houses the Hall of Arms, The Palazzo della Ragione and the adjoining Theatre Sena.

Roch and Sebastian, by Fountains Lombardesche and the Clock Tower, ancient gateway to the above complex of the Castle, on which stands the keep, Torre said the Campanon, accessible through via Crampons. Continuing via Luzzo, characterized by the sequence of frescoed houses, is located, after the Palace Villabruna, Museo Civico headquarters, the Porta Oria, which closed the eastern side of the walls.

Back in the Piazza Maggiore, it then continues in the adjoining square of wood (with the neo-Gothic Palace Guarnieri corner), to see, junction with the ascent Muffoni, the sixteenth pawnshop (is to remember that the founder of these institutions, Bernardino Tomitano, era feltrino). A little further, in via del Paradiso, meets on the right the Gallery of Modern Art “C. Rizzarda”. Across street from Romagno down into the parallel street Mezzaterra, follow it to the right and admiring the noble frescoed palaces that line. A short climb on the right allows you to get away Cornarotta, dominated by the Bishopric old, next head of the Museum of Sacred Art, rebuilt in 500 on the site of the thirteenth-century castle of the Bishops; The building is spread over a polygonal, to the way of Paradise, where today stands the Palazzo de’ Medium. Back down in the street Mezzaterra, follow it to the end, coming before the sixteenth century Imperial Gate, the southwest corner of the perimeter wall.
