The building dates back to the 18th century, although one particular document attached to the baptism registry hints at a pre-existing church dedicated to the Blessed Virgin. It has an atmospheric facade embellished by an harbour and by two characteristic grooved oval windows.
Inside is a statue of the virgin by the artist Valentino Besarel. The dedication of the church recalls the proclamation of the dogma of the immaculate conception by Pope Pius IX, on 8th December 1854.

This is housed in the St. Agnes’ Tower in the historic centre of Portogruaro. The Town Museum, opened in 1999, reconstructs the story of the town from the 12th century to the 20th century, highlighting and exploring the various aspects of public, private, civic and religious life in the town through the relics contained there. It contains many stone crests of noble families from Portogruaro, statues, libation dishes, inscriptions and ceramics. There are also fine 19th and 20th century prints, including a portrait of Quintino Sella as a member of the Accademia dei Lincei in 1877. 

This contains material and reconstructs rural environments of the 20th century. It contains evidence of rural life in Concordia, which has always been a community linked to agriculture and fishing, due to its close relationship with the river Lemene that runs through the town. There is also equipment, photographs and models from the agricultural life of days gone by, a living testimony of what we once were.

The San Stene Castrum has a thousand-year-old history. The first papal bull citing the Castle of San Stino dates back to 1186. In 1388 it was conquered and set on fire by the Venetians, who nevertheless over the years transformed it into a sumptuous home for noble Venetian families. Originally it probably had towers that no longer exist. The Castle is currently owned by the Tonini family.

Inaugurated in 1984, the museum houses a large part of the memorabilia of Ippolito Nievo, one of Italy’s most popular writers and the author of the novel “Confessions of an Italian”.
It contains around one hundred items, including a trunk and clothes belonging to the writer. The collection was initially made possible thanks to materials from the Castle of Colloredo of Montalbano, where it was originally housed. The castle was forced to remove these items due to the major earthquake that hit Friuli in 1976.
In the display cabinets of the “Ippolito Nievo” Museum in Fossalta di Portogruaro – housed in the Town Arts Centre – are all the editions of the aforementioned masterpiece and an original copy of the newspaper “Il Caffè”, signed by Nievo..

Nowadays, going to a fairground is a bit like stepping into a time machine and suddenly finding yourself taken back to the years when playing outside was a totally absorbing experience for children.
Fairs are filled with spellbinding sensations. Children take away lifelong memories of the colourful lights, the music, and the sweet smell of chocolate and candy floss.
Are you on holiday in Bibione! Would you like to take your children to a fairground where they can have a whale of a time, just like you did when you were little? Luna Park Adriatico in Bibione is the place for you! It spans a huge 12,000 m² and you can take your pick from no fewer than 65 rides!
What will you find at the fairground?
There are rides for children of all ages. For little ones, there’s a traditional merry-go-round with horses, a little pirate ship, canoes, mini motorbikes, aeroplanes, a train, mini bumper cars, a slide and many more fun activities that kids can enjoy by themselves as their parents keep a close eye on them. Then there are the attractions for adults, such as flying cages, go-karts and (if you’re brave enough!) the fire bat. In addition, teenagers and adults can put their skills to the test at the target-shooting, hook-a-duck, wheel of fortune and ring tossing stands. Then there are attractions for people of all ages, such as the ghost train, big wheel, hall of mirrors and rollercoaster.
Where is it?
Luna Park Adriatico is in Piazza Mercato on Via del Sagittario. You can get there by walking along the main roads in the town. Alternatively, there’s a large car park for those who choose to drive there!

Excavation in Concordia began in the last century. A Roman bridge was found under the town and a 4th-5th century B.C. burial ground known as the soldier’s burial ground was discovered on the left of the River Lemene.
In 1983 remains of the Baths were brought to light and, in the square in front of the cathedral, remains were discovered of homes with drains and floors, as well as a part of the Decumanus Maximus, the main street of the town.
The via dei Pozzi Romani (a side street of via S.Pietro) saw the discovery of two Roman wells.

Aqua Splash was Italy’s first ever water park. It was founded by a young businessman named Sergio Vacondio, who had a background in travelling shows. Having visited American water parks in the 1980s, he realized how much potential they had.
A big focus on families and constantly endeavouring to cater to the tastes of young people are the two key ingredients behind the success of the initiative, which has now been passed on to the next generation of the founding family without losing any of its appeal.
If you’ve never been before, don’t miss out on a trip to the park during your holiday!

The Zignago Industrial Group was founded in the ‘30s by Count Gaetano Marzotto, an entrepreneur who was head of the Valdagno (VI) textile group set up in the 19th century by his grandfather Luigi. Count Marzotto acquired an estate of over 1,000 hectares in the area of Villanova, a hamlet in the municipality of Fossalta di Portogruaro. Here the new agricultural centre gave an enormous impetus to the local Fossalta productive framework, managing companies according to the model of the social town of Valdagno, creating homes for workers, a nursery school, a hotel, a park, two tennis courts, a boules court, a skating rink, a Carabinieri barracks, a hospital and a textiles school. The Marzotto family are still the owners of Zignago Santa Margherita Industries today, including a glassworks, flax mill and wineries in Villanova.

On an octagonal base, next to the Palazzo Municipale, is the ancient well of the cranes, a symbol of Portogruaro. The well is the work of Giovanni Antonio Pilacorte, who completed it in 1494. The two cranes are the work of Valentino Turchetto, a sculptor from Portogruaro, who created them in 1928. The previous cranes were removed during the Austrian invasion in 1917 to make cannons.

This was built around the mid-12th century and was once called Porta del Bando and then Porta S. Lazzaro (St. Lazarus’ Gate) after the lepers’ 
hospice of the same name, which was built in 1203 on what is now via Zappetti. It was restored in 1555-56 by podestà Girolamo Zorzi, as the inscription above the gate recalls.
