Portogruraro is a lovely town on the border with Friuli region. Its impressive old town setting surrounded by picturesque sites will satisfy even the most sophisticated tourists. Entering the town from Porta San Gottardo will bring you right along the row of old buildings of the Venetian epoch featuring typical windows decorated with flowering pots during fine seasons. The porticos are signature for this street where you can easily reach main square with Duomo di Sant’Andrea. In Piazza della Repubblica you will find a large town hall with signature Ghibelline battlements. From the town hall you can visit one of the most characteristic corners of Portogruaro called i Mulini sul fiume Lemene. Recently restored this iconic location became the base for temporary exhibitions.
Conserving important part of Paleovenetian heritage, Concordia Sagittaria sits along the river Lemene which banks still retain traces of the Roman era, such as the forum, the theater, the baths and part of a three-arched bridge over which passed the Via Annia. The name comes from an arrow factory (“Saggittae”) that once was based in this location. In addition to the heritage of Roman era, here are found the remains of the Early Christian dating back to the IV and XI century that attract crowds of tourists. The unique setting includes sepulchral precincts, Basilica Apostolorum enriched with mosaics, Trichora Martyrum, trefoil building for the preservation of the relics of Saints and the Baptistery with interior gorgeously decorated with frescoes.
