Follina is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Treviso in the Italian region Veneto, located about 60 kilometres (37 miles) northwest of Venice and about 35 km (22 mi) northwest of Treviso.

Situated in the Treviso countryside, on the “Strada del Prosecco” (“Prosecco wine route”), it is a village in the landscape of Veneto's pre-Alps. It is home to the eponymous abbey, built here in 1170 with the patronage of the Patriarch of Aquileia. St. Charles Borromeo was its abbot.
