The territory of Corm˛ns, well known throughout the world for its production of fine wines, is located close to the eastern border of the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region, and boasts of a widely varied natural environment. The town is of pre- Roman origins and acquired significant importance in the Early Middle Ages thanks to the presence of a large "castrum" on the nearby mount Quarýn which, in the year 610, survived the invasion of the Avars. From 628 to 717, it became the main residence of the Patriarchs of Aquileia. Subsequently, it was given as a gift by Otto II to the Patriarch Rodoaldo and was then the object of a dispute between the Patriarchs and the Counts of Gorizia, who were then to become its governors. In 1497, it was ceded to Maximilian I and remained Austrian until 1915, except for brief interruptions during the Venetian and Napoleonic occupations.
The town was awarded its own statutes and privileges as early as 1453. There are numerous historical buildings which testify to its past: from the ruins of the Quarýn Rocca (fortress) and the characteristic Medieval town walls, to the more recent Baroque buildings and the constructions from the eighteen hundreds.
Place to visit are: the Church of San Giovanni, known as Santa Lucia; the Cathedral of Sant'Adalberto, the main church in Corm˛ns; other ancient churches such as Santa Apollonia. There are a number of smaller,characteristic localities to visit in the surrounding area which possess aspects of significant interest for the tourist.
