Located in the northern part of the Marca Trevigiana, in the middle of the ancient medieval village, the Castello di Serravalle is one of the urbanistic pearls of the Veneto landscape.
Castrum di Serravalle History
The ancient village of Serravalle with its square, Renaissance palaces and the castle develops to the north of the town of Vittorio Veneto. Since Roman times, the strategic position of the place has become particularly important, as it is located on the communication route between Cadore and Alemagna. The current Castrum is built by the family from Camino in the twelfth century, probably on the remains of a previous Roman settlement of the first century BC.
With its wide esplanade surrounded by walls, the Castle remains the fulcrum around which the entire village revolves, especially with the development that took place between the 12th and 12th centuries, at the same time as the bitter struggles of power between Municipalities and noble families.
Under the rule of the Republic of Venice, it then became the residence of the Podestà until the end of the 1700s and the Serenissima. In this period the village and its castle become one of the most important mercantile, manufacturing and artistic centers of the Veneto region.
Privately owned since the turn of the century, the Torre del castello currently houses a charming bed and breakfast. Once through the main entrance there is a large and evocative garden shaded by ancient trees and honeydew walls.
Each room and suite is furnished with valuable antique furniture and equipped with every comfort as well as an impressive panorama.
