The 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.
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. Restored to its original splendor, the Castello di Susans is now an exclusive location for banquets and ceremonies, cultural and business events, professional congresses and conferences.
The castle enjoys an extraordinary panorama: from the top of the hill it dominates the whole region, with a 360-degree view. This beauty is also reflected in the classical and solemn atmosphere that pervades each space and furnishing of the castle.
