Culture of Arabba. Places to visit - old town, temples, theaters, museums and palaces

Arabba is a small town but it is not hard to plan interesting excursions here. An old mill is recognized as the main symbol of the settlement. The mill stopped working only several years ago. Local people were using it to grind wheat and produce flour, and so there were old warehouses to store the grains and ready products. The historic building was on the verge of turning into ruins some time ago because it was never restored since its construction. The town’s authorities commissioned a full restoration of the mill and saved the building. Today, the old mill is one of the most valuable historic landmarks in the region.

The Andraz Castle is an important historic symbol of the town. This castle was built at the beginning of the 11th century. The fortress is located on top of a hill. For centuries, the stronghold was protecting the nearby settlements from enemy attacks. The Andraz Castle was also an important defensive barrier on the road to Venice. In modern times, the castle lost its importance and became abandoned. A part of the buildings in the fortress complex became destroyed. It became possible to partially restore the castle during an extensive reconstruction that ended not many years ago. Summer is the best time to visit Andraz Castle.
