Castelfranco Veneto is considered one of the most interesting "small towns" of the Veneto.
Rich in history and situated in a central location, is the ideal starting point for visiting many point of interest including Cittadella, Bassano del Grappa, Asolo, Montello and the Grappa massif, as well as the most famous Treviso, Vicenza, Venice and Padua.

 

Castelfranco was born in the late 12th century by the town of Treviso to defend its territories from Padovani and Vicentini. At the same time the rulers Treviso conceded special tax exemptions (from here the name Castelfranco) and economic benefits to those who agreed to go there to live.

 

Even today the castle is well preserved, with a perimeter of 930 meters and solid towers at the corners and midpoints of the walls seven meters high.
As time was less than the military aspect of the city but increased its economic and cultural importance. In the urban and rural Venetian nobles did, in fact, build some beautiful villas.

Inside the castle you can visit the Academic Theatre, designed by the architect Preti and built since 1754. The theater is not only a jewel of history but also the center of the city, the landmark of the civil life of the castle. Also within the walls, there is also the Cathedral, also designed by Francesco Maria Preti from 1723. The Cathedral includes the famous "Giorgione's Pala" entitled "The virgin and the Child".
