Museum of the Great War and the Palmanova Fortress

Cividale Gate, built between 1604 and 1605 under Nicolò Dolfin, is one of the three accesses to the fortress of Palmanova.

It has a monumental and austere facade, without decorations but covered with ashlar worked in white and gray stone. It has a severe appearance with its watchtowers connected by a balustrade.

In the highest part of the Gate, called “Dongione”, there is the Museum of the Great War and the Fortress of Palmanova. They hold documents, weapons, uniforms and memorabilia whose history covers the entire period of city life, from its foundation in 1593 to the present day. In fact, over 400 years of history of the troops who lived and worked in the fortress city are preserved here.
