Palazzo dei Trecento, also known as Palazzo della Ragione, is one of the most important architectures in the historic centre of Treviso, overlooking Piazza dei Signori. Usually open for exhibitions and events. I was there to see the photographic exhibition for the 100 years of the military air force, very beautiful..

Splendid building in the historic center of Treviso. The council chamber which can be visited contains the coats of arms of the city families and is a wooden splendour. Too bad that probably due to the war destruction of 44 this splendid building is surrounded by semi-modern buildings

A visit to this ancient palace completed in the second half of 1200 is well worth it. Maybe accompanied by a bit of history.

Historic Site of the week

La Hougue Bie

La Hougue Bie is a Neolithic ritual site which was in use around 3500 BC. Hougue is a Jèrriais/Norman language word meaning a \'mound\' and comes from the Old Norse word haugr. The site consists of 18.6m long passage chamber covered by a 12.2m high mound. The site was first excavated in 1925 by the Société Jersiaise. Fragments of twenty vase supports were found along with the scattered remains of at least eight individuals. Gravegoods, mostly pottery, were also present. At some time in the past, the site had evidently been entered and ransacked.

In Western Europe, it is one of the largest and best preserved passage graves and the most impressive and best preserved monument of Armorican Passage Grave group. Although they are termed \'passage graves\', they were ceremonial sites, whose function was more similar to churches or cathedrals, where burials were incidental.
