  • The Church is one of the oldest religious buildings in Udine, now Deconsecrated and converted into a temporary exhibition area. The convent connected to it was the site of the Friars Minor. The convent is now the seat of the Court, but it was hospital and also home to the Museum of natural sciences. The Church, of 1200, is in Romanesque style with gabled façade and a single nave nave ceiling trusses. There are three apsidal chapels: the Central, largest, lies the altar. The Interior has a Latin cross plan, has been renovated in 1700. The frescoes, largely ruined, have an imprint from the school of Giotto. To see the beautiful "Annunciation" located on the arch at the entrance to the chancel and pleasant fresco of 1300, on the right side of the apse. Other frescoes, 1300-1400, always lie along the inner walls. Majestic the great fresco "Lignum vitae". From 1331 the Church houses the sarcophagus of blessed Odoric.

  • The Friars Minor settled in Udine in the second half of the thirteenth century. In this church he was buried originally blessed odoric of Pordenone, died in 1331, shortly after he returned from his missionary journey to China. In 1347 there was deposed by Bishop Guido Concordia body Flashes, patriarchal vicar. The architectural structure of the building is very simple: gabled façade, nave. Inside are the frescoes of Giotto, partially ruined, dedicated to some important moments in the life of blessed Odoric. In the apse we note an interesting "Lignum vitae", reminiscent of that found inside the Abbey Church of Sesto al Reghena. Currently the Church, Deconsecrated, venue: the Interior is, therefore, open to visitors during special events.

  • Beautiful 13-century church was heavily destroyed. Now restored. One of the oldest buildings in Udine. Most of the time is closed, unfortunately.
