Col is a fortress of Vilthia. It's the seat of the Province of Colat and the feudal seat of House DeBiasio.

History

The fortress was used during the First World War as an underground battery, and during the Second World War as a refuge for civilians during aerial bombing. Although it is now the seat of the House DeBiasio, the members of the family reside in Vignetia. The Fortress hosts the jurisdiction administrative offices and is run by the Castellan warden Mattia Visin.

Etymology

The furlan word "Col" means "mountain" or "hill". So the name derives from the position of the fortress, on Mount Colcolat.
