Castello di Conegliano History
The Castle of Conegliano is the medieval core of the town of Treviso. Located in a strategic place, it dominates the whole city and the surrounding territory.
The oldest news on the fortress dates back to the 12th century. Of the original structure of the Scaliger foundation it is only possible to make reconstructions based on the pictorial evidence of the time. In fact the complex has been the object of a series of reconstructions and restorations over the centuries.
The tower that today identifies the castle is called "della Campana" because it welcomed the bell that called the population to collect. Besides it, only the ancient dome of the city wall has come to us from the original complex.
Currently the structure houses the Civic Museum in which there are several sections, divided by floor: the gallery and the lapidarium in which are collected paintings and sculptures of famous names of art, suffice to mention Giovanni Antonio Pordenone and Palma il Giovane.
At the historic fortress of Castel Vecchio is the restaurant, in an environment completely restored in 1990 that, enjoying the privileged position, can offer guests a panoramic view over the whole valley of Conegliano. The kitchen offers traditional recipes from Veneto and Treviso with an eye to the typical products, respecting the seasonal nature of the ingredients.
