Cison di Valmarino is one of the most beautiful burghs in Italy. Situated in the Treviso foothills, it amazes everyone for its beauty and its historical, artistic and cultural richness.
The archpriestal church of S. Maria Assunta with a double facade and the works of Francesco Casagrande and Egidio Dall’Oglio and the Castle of Castelbrando with a splendid view it gives on the town and on the Prosecco hills are definitely not to be missed.
It is possible to reach numerous naturalistic oases from the center of Cison di Valmarino. The Parco del Ruio, the Rifugio dei Loff (Loff Mountain Refuge) above the Bosco delle Penne Mozze with the stems of Simon Benetton, the Rosada with the ancient wash houses, the Ciclamino Cave, are only some of them.
It is also possible to travel through history here: strolling along the ancient Via Maestra or Via dell’Acqua, or following the “100 day road” which, from the valley floor, in a short time leads to the San Boldo Pass, (over 700 m asl) overlooking Valbelluna.
Cison di Valmarino is the scene of numerous events organized all year round. There is “Assaporando Cison” with its tasty food and wine proposal in the spring and “Artigianato Vivo” with the rediscovery of ancient crafts and ever-present artisan skills in the summer. Among the winter events you can find “Stelle di Natale” with the typical products related to the Christmas holidays, the centuries-old Frankish Fair of San Simone and Giuda in Tovena, which is among the oldest ever, and the Mostra dei Presepi – the exhibition of more than 70 nativity scenes en plein air to be admired in Mura through the narrow streets of this quite well preserved hamlet.
There is also the hamlet of Rolle (Borgo FAI) not far away, a place that the famous poet Andrea Zanzotto, a great lover of the place, rightly called “a postcard sent by the gods”.
