Map and touristic guide of VILLA MANIN at Passariano and of the municipal district of Codroipo
(Europe - Italy - Friuli Venezia Giulia region - province of Udine - omogeneous area of Terre Manin with Codroipo and Passariano)

  Since the ancient times this area has had a very eventful life because it is located in the point more northern in which the Tagliamento river is easily fordable (here have passed an infinity of merchants and armies), because it is one of the more smooth direction between the Middle Europe and the Mediterranean Sea and, at last, because it has plenty of water just at South of a dry flat country 15 km large
The same name of Codroipo express this fact because it derives from the latin ‘Quadruvium (crossroads). It should be testified also by a historical site of the town, ‘Le Catocce’, name which seems indicate a settlement of greek-alexandrian Christians in the first centuries a.C. The historical vestiges widespread in the locality however the centuries subsequent the 1500, when finished the Turkish incursions and aristocratics of the republic of Venezia can dedicate theyselves uninterruptly to the utilization of the rich soil of the Codroipo country.


So is born the magnificent Villa Manin, country residence of the Doge of Venezia. The great complex has been built upon the house of the land agent and became symbol of this area of the friulan flat country, both in the dry and in the wet sides of it, jointed by the ‘Stradone Manin’ (big road Manin) which starts just from the Villa.
 The other element of great interest in the municipal district of Codroipo are the phenomenons of resurgence, that, with various types of springs, create in few s metres numerous ways of water: you can watch them in a dedicated park.  

The things to see

  TheVilla Manin has been built in the space of a century (1600-1700). Its main elements are: central building in venetian style, lateral arcades, exedra with two towers, octagonal chapel park in french style with medows, scrubs of trees (several world’s species) and scattered statues; from the main northern entrance of the park starts the Stradone Manin, straight dirt road, tree-lined with poplars and interrupted only by road-railway axis at Zompicchia village.
