Colloredo di Monte Albano revolves around its prestigious castle, a bundle of buildings dating to various periods that make up a spectacular complex in a panoramic position, halfdestroyed by the 1976 earthquake but already mostly rebuilt. Noble households had their residence here; even Ippolito Nievo wrote here most of his masterpiece, Le Confessioni di un Italiano.
Among the works of art in the castle, an outstanding cycle of frescoes by Giovanni da Udine (ca. 1556) was partly saved and restored. In the parish church of SS. Andrea and Mattia, a lovely Annunciation by Gaspare Diziani (1749) and an altapiece by Giulio Quaglio (Virgin of the Rosary and Saints, ca. 1695) are worth seeing. Other lovely 14th-century frescoes are found in the small church of S. Pietro, while the church of S. Lorenzo in Lauzzana contains an altarpiece by Agostino Ridolfi (1694).
