Portobuffole is an authentic jewel, from historical and architectural point of view. The name of this small village, with less than thousand inhabitants, derives of a 10th century castle, Castellarium Portus Buvoledi. In medieval times it was called Settimo and was the port on the River Livenza.
The lord of Settimo was Tolberto da Camino who married Gaia, the daughter of Gherardo da Treviso. Gaia da Camino received Settimo as a wedding gift from her husband Tolberto. In 1307 Gaia moved to Settimo with all her court and lived here untill her death in 1311. During that period the place grew progressively and becam an important river port.
Later on the place came under the rule of the Venetian Republic and shared the prosperity and later decline with the "Serenissima". It is also the period when the place was renamed to Portobuffole.
Porta Friuli and Torresin is the eastern entrance to the village. The Lion of San Marco, above the city gate, indicates that Portobuffole was a part of the Venetian Republic.
