Col San Martino (Farra di Soligo)

Description

District of Farra di Soligo, located in the province of Treviso, Col San Martino is surrounded by lush green hills, covered with neat rows of vines, which produce an excellent Prosecco. The district is crossed by the stream Raboso and is bordered by "palù", a marshy area typical of the province of Treviso. The local economy is devoted to animal breeding and dairy products, as well as its fine wine production.
From remains found in the area, historians can attest that it was inhabited since Prehistoric times, while traces of the Roman civilization date us back to the colonization of the Roman Empire. In the Middle Ages, the main centre developed around a small fortress, built on the summit of a hill. The lands of Col San Martino belonged to the Collalto, while for a brief period in the XIII century, they were assigned to a local noble family (Col San Martino), but soon after returned to the Collalto. Subsequently the control over the territory was granted to the Ramponi of Feltre, and later, like most of the lands of the Treviso area submitted the domain of the Venetian Serenissima Republic from the XIV century until the advent of Napoleon. In the following years, this district shared the same fate and history of the other localities of this province.
