San Pietro di Feletto

In this chapter we discuss one of the most beautiful and characteristic locations in the province of Treviso, San Pietro di Feletto.

San Pietro di Feletto is one of the most typical places of the March of Treviso, it is located a few minutes from Conegliano and is surrounded by the green hills of the province of Treviso. Its name derives from the Latin “Felix”, that means "fern", referring to the woods of the territory.

This charming village, located on the hills, is characterized by many rural houses typical of the area and the ancient Pieve di San Pietro. This marvelous Longobard work, built around the year one thousand, was used almost exclusively for baptisms, since it was the only church in the surrounding area that had the baptismal font.

Its interior has three narrow naves, divided by round arches and walls entirely frescoed in Byzantine style, with works by various authors ranging from the thirteenth to the fifteenth century. Finally, do not miss the chapel of the baptismal font, decorated with frescoes of the late fifteenth century, which tell the life and martyrdom of St. Sebastian.
