Review Highlights
Pretty little building.

Cool, quiet, within the castle walls. Plain and unadorned interior with a famous religious painting.

A must visit if you are traveling to the Veneto region, a very enjoyable experience and real eye opener.

There aren't many paintings thought to certainly be by Giorgione and this small town has one of the best. It's his hometown which makes it even more special. Bit of a walk from
The railway station, particularly in the heat.
The Giorgione Madonna is in a side chapel - you might need to ask someone to open the chapel gate for you. The colour, fabric and light in this picture are astounding. Worth paying particular attention to the gorgeous red robes of the Madonna and the luminous patterned fabrics on which she sits. The soft hazy landscape background lends an atmosphere to the scene.
Worth investing extra time to stand and stare at this.
Also worth taking binoculars.

A typical majestic catholic church with a very special ambiance and feel. The architecture and fixtures ooze strength and purpose for the faithful.

The duomo is within the old city of Castelfranco Veneto, a small area about 2 blocks long and 2 blocks wide within tall walls with gates on either end. Inside the duomo are a number of nice works, along with a wonderful madonna masterpiece by Giorgione. We were lucky to visit one evening while an organist was practicing and gave us a wonderful concert. We then attended a crowded mass on Sunday with many families in attendance. It is nice to see a church with such a good congregation. Castelfranco Veneto is accessible by train from Venice.

There are only about eight paintings that everybody agrees were the work of Giorgione alone. In the little chapel on the right, here, you will find one of them - and it will take your breath away.

There's no charge. But please note that opening hours are limited. The church closes at noon for three or four hours.
