e-borghi travel 5, Landscapes and villages: Friuli-Venezia Giulia: mills, furnaces and the Middle Ages on the border

Mountains, hills, lowlands, forests, lagoons and also art, towns and memory. There’s something for everyone in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, a border land in the North-East of Italy. It’s one of the smallest regions of Italy and one of the richest for its historical and cultural heritage. It’s spread with different landscapes that are perfectly matched with the inhabited areas and the tiny villages. These lands are crossed by several rivers and they offer unexpected surprises in a mosaic of historical findings, palaces, castles and elegant residences: a series of vibrant and hardworking places where history is always the protagonist. A reserved land featured by its hardworking people that have often been brought to their knees by the events but they have always been able to restart and look ahead without any fear. A unique extraordinary geographical area that has grown along the centuries and its history is told by the several castles, the strongholds, the palaces, the churches, the mills, the furnaces, the spinning mills, the caves’ lakes and the industrial archaeology that can keep the treasures of the past.
