The village of red marble
Palazzos, churches, civilian buildings bear precious testimony to the history and yield extraordinary discoveries for the attentive, curious visitor wandering through these streets. Don’t miss the Conca Tolmezzina’s main places of interest.
Arzino torrent waterfalls
The Arzino torrent gives rise to a series of particularly attractive waterfalls. In the midst of thick beech copses, the waterfalls alternate between wide erosion basins and deep, verdant pools.
Lake Verzegnis is a small but stunning artificial lake set in the hearth of a lush green valley. Crossing the bridge that straddles it you can get onto the path along the lake shores or, carrying on uphill along the road, reach the Madonna de "La Salete" and the towns of Duebis and Pusea.
Colle Mazeit archaeological site
Finds and structures discovered at Colle Mazeit archaeological site confirm a human presence in the area from the 4th Millennium B.C. up to the Mediaeval period. The clearly visible remains of a guard tower belonging to a much larger fortified structure indeed date back to the Mediaeval period.
Pieve of S. Martino
The Pieve of San Martino was reconstructed from its foundations and extended in the 18th century (between 1730 and 1778) to a design by Tolmezzo Architect Domenico Schiavi. After the main entrance, the body of the church appears to divide into a nave and two aisles. Valuable furnishings and eighteenth century frescos complete the interior.
