On a plain near the confluence of the Bâtentega and Sililla rivers, in the Veneto region, lies the city of Trevizo, the administrative center of the province under the same name. It is located a little to the north of Venice. In ancient times this area was inhabited by Celtic tribes. The name of the village is probably how the city was named.

In the early period, the city was one of the most religious centers in northern Italy. After the fall of the Empire of Tarbazia, the inhabitants of the city were able to avoid the ravages of the warriors. According to ancient legend, there was a legend of Thotholder, a king of the ready.

At the time of King Charles the Great, the city had its own mint yard, where craftsmen made the coins. At the time of da Caminos reign, in the first quarter of the 14th century, Lake Trevizo was at the peak of its development. This period was marked by the construction of new buildings and reconstruction work on the fortifications of the city.

In 1388 the city became part of the Republic of Venice. Thus ended a long war with the Skaligers. The Second World War brought ruin to a once prosperous city. Many of the buildings were destroyed as a result of the air raids. ×Part of the structures were damaged.

In spite of the destruction during the two world wars, the city has been able to reconstruct some of the historic heritage of the past centuries. A part of the fortified tower structures and the city walls, about 4 kilometers in length, were destroyed. The historic gate of the Holy Cross, Saint Anthony and Saint Thomas are gone.

Many of the historic monuments have had to be restored after the war. Among them are the cathedral dating back to the 12th century, the Church of San Nicolas, and the Church of San Francesco. The Marys Monastery and St. Catherines Church house the citys museum exhibits. The Archaeology Department preserves exceptional finds from the citys archaeological digs. The walls of the monastery contain frescoes dating from 1300 to 1400 years ago. The old part of the city is still surrounded by the city walls and canals today, making it similar to Venice.
