The Prosecco DOCG area near Conegliano, Colfosco and Susegana has many castles. Most of them belongs to the Earls of Collalto, a dinasty started arount the year 1000 A.C., who ruled the region of the Marca Trevigiana for a long time.
The two main castles were located on hills overlooking some fords allowed crossing the Piave river probably since the roman age. The most famous is the San Salvatore castle: from its tower is still possible to watch the hills up to the Conegliano castle.
The castle of Collalto, the oldest, today ruined, is less famous but even more romantic.
Between the two creeks Soligo and Raboso (this gives the name to a famous local DOC wine) you can still recognize the typical houses owned by the Earls, colored in cream-yellow with characteristic red stripes.
Some of them are nowdays run as Bed & Breakfast, Osteria and wine callars from a famous Prosecco producer.
