Venue description

The Castle of Spessa, dating back to 1200 and majestically dominating the hills of Friuli Eastern boarder, has since that time stood in an area that shows evidence of the Romans. Over the centuries, the castle has been the residence of the noble lords of Friuli, hosting famous historical characters, in particular Giacomo Casanova, who stayed in the castle rooms in 1773. The noble birth and history of this castle are also evident in its private chapel, a privilege reserved for the aristocracy, and still consecrated today.
