SCHEDULE

  • 9:30 am – Meeting at the Market Parking in Via Cancelleria Vecchia
  • 10:00 am – Departure for the walk:
    from Via Cancelleria Vecchia we will head towards the central square of Cormòns where the Church of Santa Caterina also known as the Sanctuary of Rosa Mistica due to the small statue dedicated to the Virgin Mary, set in the altar, to which various miracles have been attributed. Located a few tens of meters from the Sanctuary of Rosa Mistica, Villa Perusini-Cumano has a singular architectural form that owes its name to Gaetano Perusini, a doctor, journalist, scientist but, above all, co-discoverer of Alzheimer’s.
    We will continue towards the Bar Capit, in via Friuli 26, with the Cortile dei Murales: white, blue and red are the shades which, together with the subjects of the murals, give liveliness to this corner. At number 70 in via Matteotti, we will see Palazzo Weiz – Del Mestri, built in the 18th century by one of the most influential families of the time, it is one of the oldest palaces in Cormòns We will then reach the Duomo di San Adalberto, the main church of Cormòns, which dominates the historic center from a slightly elevated position and is accessed by a large front staircase. The bell tower, in the entire Diocese of Gorizia, is the second in height after that of Aquileia. In the underground some precious mummies are kept (such as those of Venzone), 300 years old and not accessible to the public.
    Continuing on via Patriarchi, we will find the remains of the fourteenth-century Church of San Nicola, destroyed at the end of the eighteenth century. An elevated walkway allows you to walk through the interior of the structure which is sometimes used as a location for exhibitions of contemporary works of art. We will then reach the monumental Piazza XXIV Maggio, a valuable architectural work of art designed by the famous Viennese architect Podrecca, where Palazzo Locatelli is located. Built in 1700, it is now the Town Hall and the Civic Museum of the Territory is located in the internal gardens.
    Next to Palazzo Locatelli it is possible to stop at the Enoteca di Cormòns, where you can taste the best wines of the local DOC Collio and Isonzo production, and where you can also taste the highly prized Cormòns ham, a delicately smoked artisan product. Passing behind the apse of the Cathedral, you can reach the most characteristic point of the historic centre: the Centa, an ancient complex of walls and buildings that surround and protect the Cathedral of Cormòns, crossed by a labyrinth of old pedestrian streets around the large Church and which still retain the medieval urban layout.
  • 1:00 pm – Lunch at a restaurant in the center at a special price
  • 2:30 pm – Afternoon shooting:
    To discover Cormòns from another angle and to admire the city from 274 meters high, we suggest going up to Mount Quarin. The summit can be easily reached by car up to the parking lot, and then continue on foot up to the Church of the Beata Vergine del Soccorso, or through various paths that wind through nature among vineyards, olive trees and fruit trees. At the top there are the remains of the Rocca that bear witness to the strategic role that Cormòns played in history, from the Romans to the Habsburgs.

Lasciamo a voi la scelta di come raggiungere questa terrazza dalla quale si aprirà, davanti ai vostri occhi, un meraviglioso panorama che vi consentirà di vedere Cormòns da un punto di vista decisamente privilegiato.
