Brief history of Sacile
The town’s origins are connected with the construction (VIII° century AD), near a crossing place over the river Livenza of a fortified settlement endowed with its own sacred edifice, a church named after Saint Nicholas. The settlement grew in the course of the Middle Age: the original defence structure was enlarged and flourished thanks to the growth of the economic and political relevance of the crossing place over the Livenza. Sacile’s importance is reflected by the privileges it obtained from the Patriarchs: in the XIII° century, the town of Sacile spontaneously surrendered to the Republic of Venice and for this reason it obtained form the new government the confirmation of its old Stautes and privileges. During more than three centuries of venetian rule, the town continued to have aprimary role from an economic and political viewpoint and became a splendid place full of palazzos, churches, villas and gardens: the many documents mentioning it describe it as opulent and valuable, a real “Garden of the Serenissima”. The arrival of Napoleon and the fall of the Republic of Venice, determined the beginning of a period of folding up of the town into itself: The Garden of the Serenissima today reborn as a lively town, industrious and fascinating and where the superb vestiges remain.

Places to see
The town centre developed around piazza Duomo: the square is dominated by the majestic sacred building, built in the late fifteenth century upon the foundations of pre-existing buildings and designed by architects Beltrame and Vittorino da Como, then later restructured in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Among the works of art conserved in the Cathedral, we mention a painting by Palma il Giovane, an altarpiece by Francesco Bassano and fragments of fifteenth century frescos. The church is flanked by the sixteenth century belfry built in imitation of the bell tower of San Marco in Venice. Outside the Cathedral on the square it is possible to admire the Canonry, formerly Palazzo Ovio-Gobbi. Nearby there are many jewels of civil architecture: Palazzo Borsetti and the very elegant Palazzo Carli, a sixteenth century building in Venetian style; the Municipal Loggia, with its airy and elegant structure, dominates piazza del Popolo, surrounded by buildings with porticos; Palazzo Ragazzoni-Flangini-Biglia, sixteenth century, with its fresco of Montemezzano (Venetian mannerist painter) and also Palazzo Ettoreo, with a loggia, staircases and halls adorned with frescos. There are also many sacred buildings. The fairytale little church dedicated to the Madonna of Piety dates back to the XVII° century and appears as if suspended on arches reflected in the river: inside there is a niche on the main altar containing a valuable fifteenth century Vesperbild in painted stone. The church of San Gregorio is building with a single hall and painted with frescos during the sixteenth century. Leaving the centre, in Vistorta it is possible to visit the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie with frescos from late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries.
