In the Prosecco Hills
Conegliano is nestled among the Pre-Alp hills in the Marca Trevigiana, dotted with vineyards, abbeys and old mills. The town centre still shows traces of its medieval past.
After strolling through the alleyways from Piazza Cima to admire the 15th-century frescoed palaces, you can visit the 14th-century Rocca di Castelvecchio. Along the way are the former convent of San Francesco, with its beautiful cloister, and the Oratory of the Madonna della Neve. The road up to the castle runs alongside the town walls. From the panoramic viewpoint, you can enjoy magnificent views of the surrounding hills all the way to the Alps.
The cathedral belongs to the Scuola dei Battuti complex, with a 16th-century façade frescoed by Ludovico Pozzoserrato. It houses the painting Madonna and Child Enthroned with Saints by Cima da Conegliano. A passageway under the bell tower leads to the frescoed Sala dei Battuti.
Be sure to admire the Contrada Granda palaces, stroll along the footbridge over the Monticano river and sip a glass of prosecco produced in these hills. The Prosecco Wine Road of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene Hills includes four themed routes to visit wineries while enjoying the landscape.
