The history of the castleThe Castello di Susans Castello di Susans was built in the shape and architectural structure chosen in 1636 by Count Fabrizio di Colloredo, who was raised and educated in Tuscany at the court of Ferdinand I. The Count decided to build a beautiful Medici-type residence upon previous medieval ruins. This "Tuscan villa" was thus built to give prestige to one of the most enchanting parts of Friuli. The noble family of Colloredo lived in the castle up until the end of World War I, and for over three centuries.
Brought back to its ancient splendour
The earthquake of 1976 caused a great deal of damage to the complex that was however saved from an irreparable collapse only thanks to its shape and the thickness of its structure. The rectangular layout, strengthened at the corners by the four towers, resulted as being particularly earthquake resistant. Restored to its original splendour, it now houses inside large spaces and has rooms of various sizes, all of them with furniture, paintings and prints, which make it the perfect venue for prestigious gatherings, such as weddings, banquets, conferences and conventions.
