  • It was a surprise for me to visit such a peaceful typical Italian style village. Duomo is spectacular in the center, near the river. Calm experience good pizza and average prices.  more »
  • Located in the heart of Sacile and a decent size, the cathedral stands in a higher position than the rest of downtown. ù the Interior as it appears today, dates back to the adaptation works executed during the nineteenth century; It has three naves, with arches and roof trusses. Murata on the entrance wall, a plaque recalls that David was buried in the Cathedral in 1454, the son of the Turkish Sultan Murad II, who had converted to Christianity and had abandoned his father and Home. Among the artworks inside: frescos from the late 15th-early 16th century depicting busts of prophets and sybils; This is the work of John the Baptist from Udine and a. Zago and were inspired by a Tuscan author prototypes. These frescoes at the time were under the Central truss, now, after being detached, were brought into the chapel adjacent to the left aisle; painting by Francesco Bassano with Madonna with infant Jesus between Saint John the Baptist and Saint Anthony the Abbot, with St. Nicholas enthroned between the Archangel Michael and St George; altarpiece by Palma il Giovane depicting the Madonna del Rosario; the entire cycle of frescoes adorning parietal apse, work by Pino Casarini of 1946. On the site of the current Cathedral was a 9th-century church built by Enrico, conte della marca del Friuli and was enlarged in 1298. The current Cathedral was built in the late 15th century on the site of the original construction. The masters who did the work were Beltrame and Vittorio from Como, while John from Pordenone designed the Bell Tower. The building shows a rigorous attention to contemporary Venetian architecture that makes explicit the façade, mindful of models by Mauro Codussi. In 1836 was completed with the vaulted ceiling, eliminated, however, by renovations followed the earthquake of 1936. Further damaged by the earthquakes in 1976 and now completely restored in the original forms of the fifteenth century.
