It’s a small medieval village located among the Treviso hills, dominated by a fortress on the top of Monte Ricco. From here you can enjoy a stunning view. The city centre is a little gem: Piazza Garibaldi with a sixteenth-century fountain, the Castle that houses the Duse Theatre and finally the Cathedral that safeguards the beautiful “Assunta” by Lorenzo Lotto.


The most famous attraction in Marostica is the chess square. In this celebrated square, in front of the Lower Castel, a medieval reenactment takes place once in two years, inspired by a legend. The human chess game is played on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the second week of September and engages more than 500 people dressed in costume.
