Arts and Culture

The town of San Daniele hosts numerous historical buildings and churces, all very interesting from a touristical standpoint.


Visiting the Vittorio Emanuele II square, the Duomo of San Daniele, built in the 16th century, immediately stands out; this is the main church of the town, it’s dedicated to the Archangel Michael and was consacrated in 1806.

The facade was inspired by the works of art of Andrea Palladio, and was realised by venetian architect Domenico Rossi, while inside the building are situated precious canvas like the Santissima Trinità by Antonio de’ Sacchis, called il Pordenone, and some sketches by Tiepolo. Noteworthy are also the bronzed portals, made by local sculptor Nino Gortan and realised in 1982, and the Belltower, designed by Giovanni da Udine.
