Located at the foot of the mountains, the landscape of Polcenigo is highly enhanced by the presence of several streams: the water is both heard and seen. Whether it flows limpid and soft near the enchanting sources of Gorgazzo, or when it forms small rapids, it always accompanies the visitors in their wanderings in the territory, to discover at first the archaeological remains of lake dwellings at Palù di Livenza, and then, near the sources of River Livenza, the Church of Santissima Trinità at Coltura, which seems to sanction the sanctity of the bond with the water element. The church treasures a precious polychrome wooden sculpture by Domenico da Tolmezzo portraying the Holy Trinity (1496) emphatically framed by an overflowing carved altar by the Ghirlanduzzi di Ceneda (17th cent.).

The complex of church and monastery of San Giacomo overlooks the network of streams and small waterfalls weaving through the town from the hill on which the remains of the castle are (actually, villa Polcenigo, 18th cent.). The complex houses fragments of 14th-century wall painting and an Altarpiece of All Saints attributed to Francesco da Milano (first half of the 16th cent.) whereas in today’s rectory the composite Renaissance decorations culminate in a series of lively long wooden strips with heraldic and allegorical subjects and portraits. In the historical centre remarkable examples of civil architecture stand out, among which, on the main square, Palazzo Fullini-Zaia In the Church of Mezzomonte the marble altar with figures of angels in the embrasure is notable (end of 16th cent.). In the neighbourhood of San Giovanni, the Parco di San Floriano is certainly worth a visit: inside the park, the church by the same name exhibits frescoes of the Apostles, Christ in the mandorla and Evangelists in the apse (end of 14th-early 15th cent.)
