Religious Itinerary: A tour to discover places of worship

In a province so rich in art and history, places of worship are no less represented and are some of the attractions that become an absolute must to visit on arrival in the Marca di Treviso.

And so we start out from Treviso, with its wealth of churches among which are the Cathedral, the Churches of San Francesco, of Santa Maria Maggiore and of San Nicolò, inside which there is the first depiction of eyeglasses by the artist Tomaso da Modena.

We then move on to Riese Pio X, to visit the birthplace of Pope Pius X, now a museum, to see how the pontiff lived from his early years.

Climbing on towards the north, we stop at Vidor, to visit the Abbey of Santa Bona, founded in 1107 to house the relics of the Saint; then travelling on through the Valdobbiadene hills we arrive at Follina, with the splendid 12th century Cistercian Abbey still well conserved and inhabited today.

Bordering the lakes of Revine we arrive at Vittorio Veneto. After parking the vehicle we begin our walk along the hillside starting from the Cathedral of Serravalle, until we reach the Sanctuary of Sant`Augusta, a legendary place.

We then carry on bound for Conegliano to admire the altar piece by Cima da Conegliano conserved in the Cathedral.

Along the ups and downs of the hills we stop off at San Pietro di Feletto to admire the Parish Church decorated with ancient frescoes that have been beautifully restored.

For the more romantically inclined a stop at the remains of the Benedictine Abbey of Sant`Eustachio at Nervesa della Battaglia is not to be missed: places that inspired Monsignor della Casa when writing his famous ``Galateo``.

We then travel eastwards, where our first stop is the Church of San Giorgio at San Polo di Piave. Of Lombard origins but restructured between the 15th and the 17th centuries, it houses a cycle of frescoes unique of their kind dating from 1466!

A short distance away, at Ormelle, we stop to admire the Church of the Knights Templar, an impressive Romanesque building (12th cent.) featuring a low portico in front of the nave and the marvellous bell tower.

We then rejoin our ``tour`` route and reach the splendid Sanctuary of the Madonna dei Miracoli at Motta di Livenza. A place of strong worship and contemplation, this superb church was built on the exact spot of an apparition of the Madonna, way back on 9th March 1510.

Before returning to Treviso, we make just two more stops in very special places: at the Sanctuary of the Madonna di Pralongo, which houses the ``Black Madonna with child`` and at the Abbey of Santa Maria del Pero at Monastier, founded in 958 and this too the subject of legend.
