Stunning views, intriguing interior! Apr 02, 2011
Although this church was closed off and under heavy reconstruction, I think that it would make for a great visit. The surrounding area offers great views of Udine and has a long history behind it. Although the fa├žade was put up at some point during the fifteenth century, the core of the building may be from as early as the eighth century. However, this was because the site was rumoured to be associated with some ancient cult, and not as the centre of early Christian worship! I really thought the historical background of the site made the place interesting and look forward to visiting the interior, which is said to contain some wonderful frescoes, once it is restored in full glory.
