A fortress city planned and built by the Venetians in 1593, it is called the “star-shaped city” for its polygonal star-shaped plan with 9 points. Since 1960 the historic part of the city is a national monument. Since 2017, the fortress of Palmanova has become part of the UNESCO world heritage.
The Civic Historical Museum and the Historical Military Museum offer the opportunity to deepen the understanding of this “unicum”, an incomparable example of Venetian and French military architecture.
TRE CIME DI LAVAREDO
The small body of water, of intense color, the narrow shore in the embrace of very green scented fir trees, the Dolomite mountains covered with numerous conifers that enclose the lake, give the Lake of Misurina a particular feeling of peace and tranquility. Of the dolomitic lakes, that of Misurina, although one of the smallest is the most graceful and evocative. One of the few lakes that combines the pleasure of the serenity of the lake atmosphere with the excitement typical of the imposing Dolomite mountains.
The Dolomites have been declared a World Heritage Site for the “series of extraordinarily distinctive mountain landscapes and exceptional natural beauty”, “the variety of sculptural forms” of “their vertical and pale peaks”.
