The legally protected core of Bale represents an ensemble of buildings with elements of Venetian Gothic, inhabited and deserted houses, religious offices, city gates, underpasses, round streets, portuni (doorways), baladur (small covered terace) and an occasional Venetian lion and feudal crest as a symbol of the inevitable passing of time.
Opposite to the kastel Bembo stands the Town Hall with loggia, built in the Venetian Gothic style.
Favorite thing: The four storey "kastel" whose facade is decorated with two rows of Gothic mullioned windows. This castle was originally called Soardo after the family of the same name who built it in the 15th century. It later became the property of the Bembo family, so that it is why it has a dual name Soaardo-Bembo.
