Castellum Laebactium

As it is suggested form the name itself, the village of Castellavazzo was born around an ancient fort, the Castellum Laebactium, which allowed the town to hire a certain importance.

It seems that the original church dedicated to the Saints Quirico and Giulitta (dating back to the centuries X-XI) arose on the ruins of the castle, which had ceased its political and military functions, transferred to the fortress of Gardona. The latter was an imposing building erected in 1171 by Ottone, the bishop of Belluno, as part of the defensive system of the county of Belluno.

In the village of Gardona, just north of the town of Castellavazzo, it is still possible to the see the ruins of the tower, characterized by a very special triangular plan, and which is possible to reach along the path that winds its way from the cement above the route of the railway line, retracing what was once the ancient Roman road . The tower is all that remains of the ancient fortifications that stretched from the rocks of "Rovesa" to the bed of the river Piave.

Not far from the remains it is also the ancient quarry used nine centuries ago for the construction of the fortress.
