On the hill of the city stands the castle, from which you can enjoy a spectacular view.

Do not miss the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta with its Romanesque-Gothic architecture, the wonderfully restored Palazzo Elti, which is the original appearance and the seat of the museum, the Cineteca del Friuli, with a valuable collection of photos and videos and the sanctuary of Sant’Antonio, which seems to be the oldest church in the world, dedicated to the saint of Padua.
