Villa Papadopoli Giol, better known as Papadopoli Giol “castle”, was erected in 1800 at the demand of the Count Papadopoli. The Villa was built in an English neo-gothic style in the very same place where the old castle of the Count Da Tolentino stood, later owned by the patrician family Gabrieli from Venice.
The Villa – with its battlemented towers, pinnacles and big Gothic windows – was designed with the purpose of mesmerizing the guests; the grand park with numerous fish ponds, lakes, small waterfalls with water features and a large variety of vegetation, was created with the same intention. Nowadays the Papadopoli Giol castle is open to visitors and hosts weddings, meetings and other exclusive events.
The Villa is also the premises of the oldest documented winery in Italy, in which prestigious wines are made from local grapes cultivated according to organic agriculture techniques.
