Castle of Monterìco

Heading south and reaching Pieve di Cadore, the castle was on Monterico (or Montericco), the hill overlooking the town. The first evidence of the fort date from the first half of the twelfth century, but this first building was destroyed by fire and was later rebuilt, under the rule of the Patriarch of Aquileia. Gradually it lost importance during the Venetian rule. With the advent of the French troops (end eighteenth century), the fortress was again occupied before being finally abandoned. After the transition to the Kingdom of Italy, the late nineteenth century, on the site where was the manor, it  was built a military fortification, called Castello Battery, which is still visible although abandoned. At about 200 meters as the crow flies is the Montericco Fort, other military fortification, contemporary to the Castello Battery.

It can not be considered a castle, however, the Palace of the Magnificent Community of Cadore, in the centre of Pieve di Cadore, although the battlements of his tower can remember a fortress. Built between 1444 and 1492, the imposing building was intended to bring together the Members of the twenty-seven Cadore Rules, when the civic tower dell'Arrengo rang the bell. Rebuilt and restored as early as the sixteenth century, following the destruction caused by the League of Cambrai war before (including the Emperor Maximilian I of Habsburg and the Republic of Venice) and by a random fire then, the building continues to host the offices of the Magnificent Community of Cadore, along the historical archive (preserved in dell'Arrengo Tower), two libraries (one of which is dedicated to Tiziano Vecellio) and the Cadorino Archaeological Museum. On the ground floor, however, the space that from 1683 to the first years of nineteenth century housed the prisons, is now the Titian Gran Caffè, which is not only a place of consumption, but also home to cultural events, such as in the style of the historical cafes born in the eighteenth century .
