Inner-city

Of the walls now remain only the two towers, but the structure is still read in the path of the existing ditches. Coming from the south, along the highway “Holy”, the entrance into the city is dominated by the Torre di Porta Padova with the clock.
It continues until the central Piazza Castello, with ample parking in the adjacent Campo Marzio. Here is the fortress, I wanted to Tiso, sede hour's Pretoria municipal, by side with the high tower of the Castle.
It comes from the square to the north, through via S. Anthony, after the bifurcation of the river that surrounds the city Vandura. The living room of S. Antonio nel 1231 is remembered by Cell Vision, incorporated into the Church of S. John the Baptist of Friars Minor. A little further north (off Map) is the Shrine of Walnut, of 1432, with frescoes by Girolamo Tessari said “Dal Santo”. You return to the fork and follow the river north branch by S. Antonio to the node with the hydraulic Tergolino and Muson. Because Cordenons then go along the eastern side of the country, defended by three parallel streams, to the Villa Querini, houses the public library and the Villa Campello, undergoing restoration. E’ to remember the fortified system of the Seraglio, Francesco il Vecchio da Carrara built at the end of the fourteenth century by raising a massive levee defenses and continuing along the shore of Padua Muson, in order to connect the strongholds of Camposampiero, Stigliano and Mirano.
