Treviso and its surroundings
Treviso’s countryside, evidence of a glorious past
The entire territory of the province of Treviso if full of old and small villages which conceal inestimable artistic and architectural masterpieces. The history of Marca Trevigiana is ancient and is intimately connected with that of the Serenissima Republic of Venice. The latter, in fact, used to extend its dominion throughout Veneto up to the 18th Century.
In particular, Treviso was vital for the Republic: it used to produce wheat as well as building materials and timber to build boats from its land. In this period, therefore, there was an important development of the territory. Thousands of villas, churches and buildings were built and they still remain an evidence of a glorious past.
