  • Just 10 km. from Pordenone, this site preserves the Romanesque-Byzantine church dating from the 12th-13th century. The vestibule of the Church, very large, with numerous frescoes, including heaven and hell, as well as a collection of marble and stone materials. The Interior of the Church has three naves decorated with columns and pillars, the frescoes are reminiscent of the work of Giotto. There is also a large crypt under the presbytery. The Abbey curated by centuries by the Benedictines, was suppressed at the end of 1700. Not to be missed if you are in the area.

  • Great place to enjoy the quiet time with the river water and the memory of history. But please don't come in too many. I would like it to be retained so a little oasis with many little jewels: palatial marble statues, a young man in Opatija that tells you when visiting the birth and history of the place, the park with river and waterfall, the old Depot and rose garden of the library which is now blooming again. And if you want to sound guide info Centre for visiting with the beautiful voice of Massimo Sommaglino it's always nice to come through here

  • beautiful Benedictine monastery with remains of paintings of Giotto's work recovered partly and partially made unreadable by following reconstruction. the Abbey we see today stands on the ruins of a previous Romanesque work.

  • Beautiful .... inaudible the ban to photos in the basilica, probably don't like to share the beauty ... and think that Catholicism is or should be love and brotherhood.

  • So named because then immersed in an extensive wilderness, was founded around the first half of the 8th century. It is a major centre of temporal power in Friuli was second only to the Patriarchate of Aquileia, also through donations, received by Charlemagne, lothair, Berengar. Almost entirely destroyed the Magyars in 899 and rebuilt some 50 years later, the Abbey increased his power not only on the religious level, but also civil, enough to take on the appearance of a medieval castle with its defence system formed by towers and moats. With diploma of 967, Otto I donated to the Patriarchate of Aquileia Sixth Abbey that later, in 1420, came under the domination of the Venetian Republic that entrusted, in 1441. Abolished the commandery, property and the property of the Abbey were auctioned. After several vicissitudes the religious jurisdiction passed to the Diocese of Concordia (1818) and in 1921 the Holy See recognized again the title "Abbey".
