The Fortified City

Palmanova is a fortress city built by the Republic of Venice at the behest of Giulio Savorgnan. To defend itself from the Turks and the Habsburgs, Venice decided to build a new fortress at the center of the Friulian plain. With its star-shaped plan it is one of the masterpieces of Venetian military architecture. On 9 July 2017 the fortress becomes UNESCO heritage.
