Cison di Valmarino is located towards the end of Valmareno (also called Valsana), the valley that from Vittorio Veneto arrives to Follina by following the stream of river Soligo. It seems like the place name Cison derives from Latin caesum, which means cut with reference to the old conditions of the territory, reclaimed and cleared. The origins of Cison are lost in the dawn of time: the territory was probably inhabited since Middle Palaeolithic, as findings testify the presence of man already before 40,000 years ago and other findings testify human activity in the Bronze Age and in the Roman era. The most popular characteristic of the city is the splendid medieval castle that stands on the imposing spur of Col de Moi, about a hundred metres from the city centre. In the past it was the central point of the political power and point of reference for the entire area, residence of the Counts of Valmareno, of the Podesta and the seat of the administrative and court offices; the entire complex was recently renovated and adapted to a high quality facility for accommodation and conferences. Within its walls, in the most modern comfort, visitors can relive the stories of battles and duels, of ladies and knights: the ones of Gattamelata and of the Brandolini family, the latter governed the feud of Valmareno for centuries. Instead, if you hang out from the imposing bastions and let yourself get carried away by the enchanting view, your look will certainly be fascinated, looking down, by the small old town centre of Cison. The coming and going of tourists and villagers that animate the city streets, the small square plumed for the occasion, the nearby mowed fields crossed by gravel roads and the landscape of the surrounding hills constitute an irresistible call for trekking, horse riding, healthy life and good food lovers. The main square of the village still preserves all the elegance and charm of the past. Cison also offers numerous events that are already famous like "Assaporando Cison" with its delicious gastronomic proposal and "Artigianato Vivo", the rediscovery of ancient crafts and the evergreen craftsmanship.
