About the Region
The Church of the Carmine with adjacent Convent House and the Tower of Rai are symbols of great historical and artistic interest, important for the history of Rai and the Treviso countryside that stretches from Conegliano to Oderzo. The Church and the convent, part of a complex of cloistered Carmelite fathers, were built by Raimbaut XII (Earl of Collalto), in the fourteenth century were an integral part of the courtyard of a large castle, now destroyed with the passage of the War world.

To date, there is nothing left of that important castle except a glimpse of the wall of the central tower. The church of Carmine instead has been preserved in good condition, despite suffering several floods over the centuries: it is such a unique incision present on the inner edge of the door, it shows how, in 1567, the water of the Piave came even 1 , 50 meters. Is there still a part of the inner courtyard where you can see some wall paintings and a sundial, against the walls of the church; from this yard well appears the bell tower, that the origins was a lookout tower.
