THINGS TO DO IN THIS PICTURESQUE VILLAGE
You look around and the scenery is breathtaking: rows of vineyards draw frames along the slopes of the hills and the eyes follow them to the horizon. Behind, the mighty walls of San Salvatore Castle. It’s pleasant to sit and stay there to enjoy the silence and fill the eyes of so much beauty. Every time that we go to Susegana, the top of the hill that dominates the city is a must stop.
In addition to visit San Salvatore Castle, here you can go on an excursion immersed in the nature and when you’re hungry… No problem! You’ll be beating them off with a stick, between wine cellars, farms and typical restaurants.
If you need some ideas, here’s what we recommend to do and see in Susegana and surroundings.
NOT TO MISS
SAN SALVATORE CASTLE
When you reach the top of the hill, already from the huge entrance, from the mighty walls and the old tower which stands out the sky, the castle shows all of its magnificence… It was founded in the XIV century, but during the First World War, it was damaged by bombing. The Castle was built by Collalto, a powerful family of Lombard origin, who erected many castles in its feud, the territory of Treviso.
Useful tips: San Salvatore Castle is a private property and can be visited by reservation only with guided tour. For information you can call the number +39 0438.435020 from Monday to Friday 8 am to noon and from 2 pm to 6 pm.
THE VIEW OF THE PROSECCO HILLS
If initially our attention was captured by San Salvatore Castle, as soon as we noticed the view that you can enjoy giving the shoulders to the manor, we stopped to admire the green rows of vineyards that create a play of light on the meadows, the little church that stands on the left and the ancient farmhouses. With a glass of good prosecco, we would have reached the peace of the senses…
THINGS TO VISIT
CHIESA DELLA VISITAZIONE DELLA BEATA VERGINE
Located in the center of Susegana, this church built in the XIII century, preserves some frescoes and the blade “Madonna between Saints” of Giovanni de’ Sacchis, said the Pordenone (XVI Century).
I RESTI DEGLI ANTICHI PONTI ROMANI
Following the path along the left bank of the river Piave, you can visit the remains of a Roman bridge (situated in “Villa Jacur”) and the “Old Bridge” on Torrent Crevada.
To immerse yourself in the peasant life and to discover the ancient crafts and trades certainly a stop here is worth it. The museum is hosted in a farmhouse, typical of Venetian countryside, and preserves old objects and tools related to the rural world and craftsmanship.
Useful tips: the museum is located in Via Barrier 35, Susegana (TV) and is open from Tuesday to Friday from 9.00 to 12.30 on Sunday from 3 pm to 6 pm. On Saturdays it’s open only on booking for groups of minimum 10 persons. For more info +39 0438.738610 – email@example.com.
THINGS TO DO
A seal of 1220 hectares that lies at the foot of the Castle of San Salvatore. A seal made of farms, orchards, vineyards and cultivated fields, canals and which also includes a tavern, a farm and a Didactic Farm.
For having a break, we suggest a stop at “La Frasca”, the company store, where you can enjoy in a rustic setting an authentic snack of the countryside and taste the genuine products of the land, from Mozzarella di Bufala to extra virgin olive oil from meats to Prosecco Borgoluce. Here, the Museum of Crafts and of Peasant Civilisation will make you relive the peasant atmosphere of the early years of the Twentieth Century.
We suggest Borgoluce because it’s a completely environmentally friendly company thanks to the use of a biodigestore that transforms the manure and silage of cereals in biogas. Even the swimming pool of the farmhouse is organic, because instead of chlorine and other chemicals products they use plants.
Useful advice: the seal is huge and the various structures are located in different places. “La Frasca Borgoluce” is in Via Mandre 47, Susegana (TV). It’s open on Saturday from 4 pm to 8 pm and Sundays from 10 am to 20 pm, from spring to autumn, other days on request only. For more info click here.
AZIENDA AGRICOLA CONTE COLLALTO
Another sealing absolutely to visit, easy to notice when you arrive at Susegana, is Azienda Agricola Conte Collalto. It’s situated in a privileged position, dominated by San Salvatore Castle. A good example of integration with the territory and love for the land. At the wine cellar, in the large rectangular courtyard, is located the company store where it’s possible to buy and taste the wines of Collalto.
Useful advice: the store is located in Via XXIV Maggio 1, Susegana (TV) and is open from Monday to Saturday 8:00-12:00 14:00-18:00.
