  • Piazza Paolo Diacono

    The heart of Cividale.

    On the left stands a house from the 15th century which preserves traces of frescoes, among which the crest of Cividale is clearly visible, and pointed windows, which is said to have belonged to the family of Paolo Diacono, Lombard historian who wrote about his people. In front of the house there is a fountain with an eighteenth century sculpture depicting the huntress Diana (1803).

    On the right of the fountain there is a glimpse of the flooring, a stone plaque indicates the place where, in 1874, the so-called tomb of Lombard Duke Gisulfo was found, now exhibited at the National Archaeological Museum (Piazza del Duomo). The piazza is adorned with other beautiful buildings.
