    Old fountain

    by matcrazy1 Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: You can find this old fountain in the main square of Venzone (1878 by Tuti and Fantoni from Gemona). It looks pretty in my opinion.
    Next time I have to put Euro (maybe Eurocent hehe) into the fountain to be sure to come back there.

    Duomo

    Favorite thing: .
    The fourteenth century Romanesque-Gothic Cathedral (Duomo), built with local stone on the existing remains, consecrated in 1338 by the Patriarch Bertrando, is Latin cross shaped with a vast transept and single nave ending in three apses from the vault.
    The Baptistry is situated in front of the Dome and contains the mummies that have made Venzone famous throughout the world. The imposing circle of walls, extending around 1300 metres and beautiful Venetian Gothic town hall, built between 1390 and 1410 and then extended and modified, have also been rebuilt. Sacred buildings include the churches of Saints Giacomo and Anna, and S.Antonio, S.Caterina and S.Lucia.

    Lovely squares

    by matcrazy1 Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Walking around Venzone you can discover a few charming squares, some squares are surronded by many Reinassance palaces of the 15th-16th century, maybe 2 with cafes and restaurants around.
    BTW I think that Italian coffee (not only capuccino) is the best in Europe - how do they do it?

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: .
    Mountains around, great architecture, a few people and cars, peace and quite make the place very charming.
    Maybe it (+ tragic earthquake in 1976) makes their citizens very friendly and always smiling - just happy town now, am I wrong?

    Great reconstruction

    by matcrazy1 Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: .
    Venzone is worth visiting to see the painstaking efforts locals are making to restore it exactly as it had been for centuries (after 1976 earthquake). Pause a while to watch as, stone by stone, the 14th-century double walls, moat and gates are pieced back together.

    The Main Square

    by matcrazy1 Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: .
    Whenever you are in Venzone you must see this lovely and charming Main Square with high Julian Alps in the background.

    The medieval village of Venzone, in which the walls, buildings and houses, largely destroyed in 1976, have been rebuilt using the original stones recovered and replacing those lost, is without a doubt the most attractive urban environment. The name Venzone was quoted for the first time in 923 D.C. as "Clausas de Avenzone" by the patriarch Giovanni IV of Aquileia. This place name, having undergone various changes Albiciones, Aventione, Avenzone, Venzone, clearly originates from "av-au", "flusslauf" (spring, waterway) and therefore the Venzonassa stream. Monuments within the area, bound by the Italian State, include the Dome and Town Hall as well as the high walls, noble palaces and country houses rebuilt stone by stone.

    Mountains

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Venzone is located in Julian Alps which cover area of 2 bordering countries: most of them is in Slovenia (the highest summit Triglav 2864 m = 9396 ft), the rest in Italy.
    Just look up and admire beautiful, rocky summits (if it's not foggy there hehe) of the Julian Alps whenever you are in Venzone.
