Art & Culture
The territory of Conegliano offers many artistic, historical and cultural sites to explore and visit.
The Duomo, founded as Santa Maria dei Battuti in the fourteenth century, is today the most important church in the city, dedicated to Santa Maria Annunziata and the patron Saint Leonardo. It represents a central architectural and religious point of reference: the building is inseparable from the Scuola dei Battuti, which is to all intents and purposes an integral part of the Renaissance complex of the Duomo, thus constituting an artistic centre that preserves some of the most important paintings of the entire Conegliano area. In 1593, the entire facade was covered with frescoes by Pozzoserrato, still in a good state of conservation, thanks also to recent restorations.
In the same area, you should also visit the Church of Santa Maria di Feletto, which dates back to the second half of the 15th century, and the Molinetto della Croda, an ancient water mill located in the Lierza Valley, between the municipalities of Refrontolo and Rolle.

Wonders to see
The Castle of Conegliano (whose oldest records date back to the 12th century) is the medieval hub of the Venetian town. Situated on the top of Colle di Giano, in a strategic position, the castle dominates the whole town and the surrounding territory and today houses the Civic Museum.
The Castle of San Salvatore, in Susegana, is an ancient fortified complex that originated between the end of the thirteenth and the beginning of the fourteenth century. Today, the remains of San Salvatore consist of the battlements, the block of the Palazzo Odoardo and the large tower together with the church of Santa Croce, elements connected to the ruins of other buildings.
Another must-see is the Cistercian Abbey of Santa Maria di Follina: built on a previous Benedictine building in the 12th century, the present basilica is adorned with the typical Cistercian symbols. Several valuable works still adorn its interior. Every year, the Abbey hosts the concert of the internationally renowned violinist Uto Ughi and the Rome Philharmonic. The acoustics of the Abbey, defined among the best in the entire Veneto region, the Maestro’s expressions and the music played render this a unique and unforgettable event.
Palazzo Sarcinelli, a Renaissance building in Conegliano, is home to the city’s Art Gallery and continuously hosts unmissable exhibitions and cultural events.
The Oenological School of Conegliano is historically the first institute in which oenology is studied; it was established in Conegliano in 1876, precisely because of its position within the Prosecco production area.
Considering all the specialisations, it currently has more than 1200 students. The area of the institute is also home to the Conegliano Campus of the University of Padua which hosts the three-year degree course in Wine and Oenological Sciences and Technologies and CIRVE (the Interdepartmental Centre for Research in Viticulture and Enology). It is also home to the CRA (Agricultural Research Council) Viticulture Research Centre (VIT).

Extraordinary events & traditions
Since 1976, the “Cocofungo” event has been hosting cooks and mushrooms, with the craft of the former enhancing the flavour of the latter. Thanks to the enthusiasm of the small group of restaurateurs who immediately believed in the potential of this project, Cocofungo has become the star event of the great Marca Trevigiana food & wine tradition, also anticipating the many themed gastronomic festivals that subsequently spread throughout Italy; it has become the leading reference event in the national food and wine tourism landscape. Cocofungo has attracted the attention of the public also thanks to a precise and constant attention to quality and a capacity for renewal that has amazed even the most attentive and refined palates. Every year, in autumn, a new interweaving of flavours, ideas, creativity and, above all, produce of extraordinary quality can be found in the participating restaurants.
Another event of historical and cultural importance is the Dama Castellana di Conegliano, an event that every year commemorates an ancient battle that took place between the people of Conegliano and Treviso in 1231. The victorious inhabitants of Conegliano, were carried on the shoulders of their adversaries, along a steep street, Calle Scoto de Scoti or Calle degli Asini, to the hill where the castle of the city of Conegliano stood and still stands. La Dama Vivente – The Living Lady – is Conegliano’s historical re-enactment par excellence. This is testified by its fame in Italy and abroad and its substantial presence in all the territory events promoted by the Province of Treviso and the Veneto Region in the interest of tourism.

The memorable cuisine
of our land
The cuisine of Conegliano Valdobbiadene is rooted in the era when the hill dwellers, even before developing an animal husbandry culture, lived by hunting and gathering wild fruit in the forests. Game has traditionally been cooked on a spit, roasted or stewed, accompanied by the typical polenta. To enrich the table in the autumn and winter months, there is a wide range of forest mushrooms to choose from, such as honey mushrooms and chanterelles.
In the spring, culinary variety is renewed by drawing on wild herbs from the meadows, added to risottos or omelettes, the pride of Treviso cuisine.
Many typical cheeses such as Bastardo, Morlacco or Imbriago feature in tasty aperitifs.
Finally, for those who love fish, you can taste the Prosecco Superiore DOCG accompanying it with the specialities of our Adriatic Sea, both grilled and baked.
