Feltre houses the headquarters of the Dolomiti Bellunesi National Park.
The old town center is a real architectural treasure, resulting from the rebuilding which followed the devastating invasion carried out in 1509 by the army of Maximilian I from the House of Habsburg.
Perched on the Colle delle Capre, it is surrounded by walls and is accessible by three entrances: the monumental Imperial gate, Oria gate and Posterla gate.
The heart of the historic center is Piazza Maggiore, dominated by the Alboinoe castle surrounded by the Lombard fountains, the church of San Rocco, the Gazzi, Bovio-Da Romagno and Guarnieri palaces.
Walking along the streets of the center you can admire the numerous frescoed facades of the elegant buildings. To visit there are the Civic Museum, the Gallery of modern art “Carlo Rizzarda”: great master in the art of wrought iron, and the Diocesan Museum of sacred art.
Outside the city walls, a visit to the Cathedral and to the archaeological area that extends under the churchyard is a must.
A visit to Feltre cannot be said to have ended without a climb to the Sanctuary of Santi Vittore and Corona, patrons of the city. Located in a splendid panoramic position, a few kilometers from the city center, it was built at the behest of the crusader Giovanni da Vidor in the XI century. Enlarged in the following centuries, it houses frescoes from the Grotesque school.
