The residents of Salzano became known throughout Europe for their interest in law enforcement. The roots of modern correctional facilities can be seen in the structures built in Salzano beginning in the Middle Ages.
The town of Salzano has also been known to be a haven for thieves in the Middle Ages, particularly those who would steal wagons from the gypsies.
The City Hall is in the old Villa Jacur, once owned by a Jewish family who ran a spinnery. The villa stands close to the remains of the spinnery and its high chimney. It hosts a garden with two artificial lakes and a tiny grotto.
The bell tower of the church is the highest of Veneto region after San Marco Campanile in Venice and the one of Trebaseleghe. Pope Pius X was Archpriest of the town from 1867 till 1875. The bell tower hosted a tiny museum dedicated to him.
