City of Asolo
Historical memories and natural panoramas, Medieval vignettes and Palladian villas merge together in the unique reality of the landscape surrounding Asolo. Gently nestling in the contours of the surrounding hills, Asolo is encircled by the soft and inviting shapes of a Mediterranean backdrop of olive trees, vines and cypresses.
The group of hills rises up from the plain between Asolo and Cornuda; to the north it is protected by the stretch of foothills and slightly further west by the Grappa range.
The Asolani hills and
The Asolani hills and Monte Grappa provide the option of trips by foot or on horseback and routes of natural and geological interest, not to mention fantastic cycle tourism routes.
The sun-drenched peaks of the hills are covered in meadows where, in between dog roses and juniper bushes, heather and colourful anemones alternate. In places, the mountain is covered in forests which are still rich with ancient chestnut trees, while the shaded valleys are cut through with rivulets of spring water alongside violets, anemones, cyclamens, squirrels, roe deer, blackbirds and chaffinches.
It is located in the western part of the Treviso region and is constructed out of crenellated brick walls which were built by the people of Treviso in 1199 to protect the city from the Padovans. The walls still surround the majority of the old centre or Castello. Castelfranco was the birthplace of Giorgione and in the Duomo we can still admire his famous painting of the Madonna and Child with St. Francis and St. Liberalis, known as the Castelfranco Madonna.
