Palmanova, the “fortress city” of Friuli-Venezia Giulia

Palmanova, which has had a glorious and fascinating past, today is one of the best preserved jewels in the province of Udine. Palmanova is only 50 km from the famous beaches of Lignano Sabbiadoro. Its strategic position has always characterized the story: entirely rebuilt by the Republic of Venice in 1600 against the Turkish invasions, fell under Austrian domination, then under the French with Napoleon.

But every dominion contributed to reinforcing its defenses: for this reason it is today one of the few examples of the world of star-shaped fortress, unique in Italy with its nine tips with three fortified walls. The city is in the big square square, hexagonal and very wide.

The monumental doors of Cividale, Udine and Aquileia, realized by Scamozzi, open on the ramparts of the city. Palmanova is a magical place to visit on foot, leaving its streets and beautiful square overlooking the Duomo, the white white facade of Orsera and Aurisina gray stone. Also worthy of a visit are some typical Venetian palaces that open on the wide streets of the city, the Loggia dedicated to the fallen and the Palazzo dei Provveditori Generali.
