Titian’s birthplace


His house , which is typical of Cadore construction, has two stories above ground connected by a stairway situated on the main façade that leads out onto the long walkway on the first floor. The walls are made of stone and plaster, while the structure of the roof is made of spruce with laths in larch, called “scandolette”.

Palace of the Magnifica Comunità di Cadore

The palazzo is today the seat of a moral entity represented by the twenty-two Cadore municipalities. Justice was once administered here and the interests of the Cadore area seen to. The initial wall structure dates back to the 15th century, but has been rebuilt and restored several times. The wooden ceilings deserve mention, as do the artworks and the Historic Archive.
