The Castles


Near the Castle more ... a few hundred meters

The aspect and architecture of Susans Castle is the same as it was in 1636, when Count Fabrizio di Colloredo, raised and educated in Tuscany at the court of Ferdinand I, decided to build over the medieval ruins, a spectacular Medici- Style residence.
This stately “Villa Toscana “ gives undoubtedly lustre to one of the most beautiful area in Friuli. The castle was inhabited until the end of I World War by the Family of Colloredo, so for over three centuries. The earthquake of 1976 caused considerable damage to the complex, but without destroying it , thanks to its particular structure and thickness of the walls. The plant regularly reinforced at the corners by the four towers, had an anti- seismic effect.
Renovated and restored to its former glory, the castle offers spaces with different rooms, furnished with, paintings and prints, which make it particularly suitable for meetings, weddings, banquets and special events. The backdrop is unique: from the top of the hill it dominates, with a 360 ° view, the whole Friuli.
