1st Saturday of the month – the historic center of Pordenone
Discover the ancient city between alleys and small squares
The guided tour takes place in the streets of the historic center, enclosed within the medieval walls, to discover the most significant buildings characterized by traces of the past: Palazzo Ricchieri, Palazzo dei Capitani, Piazza della Motta and the Church and the convent of San Francesco, Piazza del Cristo and the Chiesa del Cristo. The itinerary ends in the district of San Marco with Palazzo Rossittis and the facade of Casa Simoni decorated with a beautiful fresco of the civic emblem.
2nd Saturday of the month – From the port on the Naone to the modern city
The expansion of Pordenone beyond the circle of the ancient walls
The guided tour starts as usual from the Loggia del Municipio to move to the bridge of Adam and Eve on the Noncello river. The itinerary then continues towards the Mantica Chapel, in the Cathedral of San Marco, where you can admire the frescoes by Giovanni Maria Zaffoni. The visit continue then along Corso Vittorio Emanule, to discover the Mantica, Montereale Mantica and Gregoris palaces of the XVI and XVIII centuries.

3rd Saturday of the month – Pordenone “minor”: from Piazza del Cristo to Largo San Giorgio
The guided tour starts from the Municipal Loggia, passing through Piazza del Cristo until reaching Largo San Giorgio. The first stage sees the visit of one of the oldest churches in Pordenone: the church of Santa Maria degli Angeli. It deserves a view inside, where fourteenth-century frescoes and the fifteenth-century wooden crucifix can be admired. Continue towards Piazzetta Peschiera, Piazza XX Settembre until you reach Corso Garibaldi, where there are buildings with characteristic features. The visit ends at Largo San Giorgio, which still retains the charm of a place that deviates from the hectic historic center.

The guided tour of Town Hall (Palazzo Municipale), built at the end of 1200, is a fundamental step for a thorough knowledge of Pordenone.
