Spittal is a wonderful symbiosis of cultural diversity and southern flair. Porcia Castle, one of the most beautiful Renaissance-Palazzo outside Italy, is not only the home of Countess Salamanca, of whom it is said that her ghost still roams about in the building, but also a place of cultural encounters. The museum of culture and the Porcia Gallery present their unique exhibits in the castle. At the Porcia Castle Comedy Festival, guests can look forward to modern interpretations of stage plays, vernissages and relaxed jazz evenings.
The city is full of life and southern flair, which you can enjoy through the culture, shopping in the town park, in the excellent restaurants and pub scene. The technical college „Technikum Kärnten“ today occupies the name-giving building of „Spittl“.If you are interested in the Middle Ages, the „Carantana“ museum in Molzbichl is worth a visit.
