Cittadella – Majestic the walls and the magic of the middle age
Cittadella is famous throughout the world for its circle of walls in the shape of an ellipse (a total length of 1416 m which goes up to a height of 12 -1 3 m) dating back to the Middle Ages.
At the four cardinal points, are the doors that retain wonderful frescoes from various periods.
Be sure to visit the thirteenth century parish church of SS. Prosdocimo and Donato and rebuilt in the fourteenth century and the fourteenth-century loggia Hall restructured at the beginning of the twentieth century.
Do not miss the Tower of Malta (1251) built as a prison for political reasons by Ezzelino Romano and mentioned in Dante’s Divine Comedy (Canto IX of Paradise). In front of the tower you can admire the church Torresino found behind the walls of the thirteenth century. A little further on, just outside the walls you can see the church of S. Donato (XII century), which was for centuries the main religious center of the town.
At the end of October (last Sunday of the month) is held the historic fair, an opportunity to appreciate the beauty of the town and its many activities.
