For all culture
lovers there are some must-visits. First of all we have the La
torre Picotta. Dating back to 1477 it was destroyed during the
Second World War. Rebuilt after that, today you can admire a
wonderful panorama over the city from here. After
that we have the impressive Cathedral and the gorgeous Church of
Santa Caterina and Palazzo Linussio.
Something else you should see is the Museum
Carnico of arts and popular traditions "Michele Gortani".

customs and traditions.
