Castello di Papadopoli Giol
Castello Papadopoli Giol is a splendid stately home with ancient origins built in the English neo-Gothic style better known as Tudor.
In 1192, the Patriarchs had a fortress built here for defence purposes and since then the name “castle” was to be for centuries linked to the site of this early fortalice. Subsequent renovation includes some very fine work by Da Tolentino, and even more so, by the Papadopoli Counts who, in 1850, chose the English neo-Gothic style that can still be admired today.
With its tall crenelated towers, bow windows, chimneys disguised as pinnacles and arched mullioned windows, this majestic building looks exactly like a real medieval English castle.
Even more surprising is its huge historic estate: an oasis of 12 hectares that still today preserves all its original beauty intact.Surrounded by secular trees, copses and vast lawns, the castle even overlooks a wonderful lake with two islands that can be reached by boat or even on foot.
The estate also includes the oldest wine cellar in Italy, documented as already existing in 1427, where prestige wines are obtained from the vinification of organically grown autochthonous grapes.

Since 1427, men of wine have handed down their experience, tradition and local culture of wine-making on the Giol estate.

Wine cellar opening times: Mon/Fri 8.00am/12.00noon - 2.30/6.00pm; Sat 8.00am/12.00noon
Sport and Wellness Tourism
The Parco Storico is perfect for runners and walkers alike, with a route set in a natural oasis.
Like the whole of the surrounding area, it also has a good number of cycle paths, including, among others, one called "crayfish and wine": in San Polo di Piave, the Church of San Giorgio is home to a fine Last supper with crayfish and red wine, which were the typical local produce (15th century).
The castle’s Parco Storico is also the starting point for horse treks to Grave di Papadopoli, where the battle of Vittorio Veneto was fought at the end of October 1918, marking the beginning of the Austrians’ full retreat.
Historic gardens and parks
The Parco Storico at the castle has fortunately retained almost all its original beauty.
This English-style park of almost 12 hectares epitomises the expert eye and fine sensibility of Francesco Bagnara, the skilled landscape gardener who created the picturesque parks and gardens so in vogue during the Romantic era.
