The enchanting effects of the lighthouse

The lighthouse is steeped in a poetic sense of nostalgia and the sight of it alone is enough to have an impact on your overall impression of the town.

From the sea, the tall white tower can easily be picked out against the backdrop of the trees as it stands out brightly on the beach. While it no longer serves its former purpose, it is bursting with vibrant historical appeal and continues to fascinate the many visitors who come to Bibione every year.

The lighthouse was built near the mouth of the Tagliamento River in the early 20th century. Once a navigational aid for those at sea, it has now been transformed into a place where holidaymakers from afar can gather.

The house next to the lighthouse is now used as a venue for art exhibitions, music events, high-calibre environmental studies, conventions and conferences. There are cycle and pedestrian paths to both the South and the North of the lighthouse, so cyclists often stop to take a break and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. It’s a great place to walk your dog and some people come here every day simply to admire the breathtaking landscape and savour the natural wonders all around.

We mustn’t forget…
…the natural marvels all around the lighthouse! The area combines a number of different habitats. Thanks to the nearby river, typical Mediterranean plants grow alongside Alpine flora and orchids in a perfectly balanced environment.

Transfer service for people who have mobility issues
From June to September, there’s a transfer service to Bibione lighthouse for people who have mobility issues. It departs from the local council office at 84 Via Maja. The service is free and it must be booked in advance.

The Church of St. Mark the Evangelist is situated in Corbolone, a hamlet of San Stino di Livenza. It is a fine treasure trove of precious works of art. The first stone was laid on 29th May 1514 and included the ancient Chapel of the Annunciation, built by the confraternity of the same name in 1459.
The church has a rectangular form with an apse and on the left side is the Chapel of the Annunciation. The facade is embellished by a rose window and on the sides there are two blind arches whose cornices are extended to the floor. The church contains an altar above which there are two black columns with a “Pietà”, created in 1585 by Benedetto Stefani from Verona.
On the main altar is the famous “Titian altarpiece”, showing St. Mark enthroned between St. Sebastian and St. Roch. The frescoes in the Chapel of the Annunciation are by G. Antonio de Sacchis, known as “il Pordenone”.

This building is part of Villa Dalla Pasqua and, together with the Belfiore Mill, forms a sort of closed courtyard to the right of the River Loncon. The Castellina has recently been restored.

This was founded in 730-735. In 899 it was sacked by the Magyars but St. Mary’s Abbey rose again and was fortified in the 10th century. In 967 Emperor Otto I donated the abbey to Rodoaldo, the patriarch of Aquileia. From 1441 - 1786 the abbey became a commendam and in 1818 the religious jurisdiction returned to the diocese of Concordia and the abbey was finally re-established in 1921.
The first walls were created in the 10th century, after the devastation caused by the Magyars. The facade is dominated by a fresco representing the lion of St. Mark, dating back to the late 15th century. Below it is a bas-relief with the crest of cardinal Grimani, to the left is a fresco where the Grimani crest is repeated and to the right there is a fresco of a crest with a cross, whose ownership is unknown.
Beyond the entry tower you access a large courtyard that has recently been paved, onto which all the main buildings of the abbey complex look. There is also a brick bell tower here.

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!

The facade of the Church of St. Biagio is in Renaissance style. However, in 1937, it collapsed and was rebuilt in a classical, neo-Palladian style. The current church has three naves and was completed at the end of the last century.
Inside is a marble baptismal font made by Giovanni Antonio Pilacorte in 1486 and an altarpiece of the crucifixion by Gregorio Lazzarini. The latter is a fine painting that effectively renders the dramatic tension of the event.


Details
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.

Vegetation abounds throughout this wildlife park, which endeavours to protect endangered plants and animals. It contains a 10 hectare botanic garden and is home to approximately 1,000 animals from 150 different species. Visitors can see flora and fauna from all over the world, including exotic plants, flowers, mammals, birds and reptiles. There are more than 200 species in total.
As well as sharing knowledge about the wildlife, one of the park’s goals is to raise awareness about topical environmental issues among visitors during workshops and guided tours.
During the school holidays, there are numerous opportunities for children to get to know the natural world, thanks in part to the park’s summer centre and the associated “Summer at the Wildlife Park” blog. Children can see young animals taking their first steps, learn about various species of animals, and smell different plants and flowers, in an experience that’s both educational and entertaining.

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.

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.
