The very original historic centre of Pordenone isn't very big so you needn't worry about getting from one monument to another. After a quick look at the amazing façade of the Town Hall, with its archways, clock and two side towers, you might want to pop into the nearby Duomo San Marco, where you'll find an altar piece created by Pordenone, a Mannerist painter originally from the city. Outside, meanwhile, the 80 metre-high bell tower is one of the most beautiful in Italy. From here, it's nice to take a stroll along the Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, which you'll find lined with beautiful old buildings. Pordenone has become a major city as a result of industrial development, both in the cotton sector during the 19th Century and more recently in the household appliances sector. Nowadays, it is also a major cultural and artistic hub, playing host to various events devoted to the worlds of cinema and literature.
