"Udine Gate Into Palmanova" Palmanova by painterdave

Palmanova Travel Guide: 26 reviews and 52 photos

A city built int he shape of a nine pointed star, so different from other Italian cities, is found north of Venice, but more near Trieste. Built to defend Venice from Ottoman raids and others from the north, it has remained in the same shape complete with a large piazza.
There is a wonderful cathedral just off the piazza, an WWI cemetery, and you can also find the hospital where WWI troops were taken when wounded.
We found an exceptional pizzeria restaurant one block from the piazza.
