Map and touristic guide of the ROSAZZO ABBEY in Friuli region

The hills of the Rosazzo Abbey between the country towns of Manzano, Corno di Rosazzo, San Giovanni al Natisone and Premariacco
(Europe - Italy - Friuli Venezia Giulia region - province of Udine - homogeneous area 'Colli del Triangolo')


  The Rosazzo area (shared by four municipal districts) today is, surprisingly, exactly as the founding friars would have wished: covered with woods and vineyards, with few buildings all dedicated to farming, silent and immersed in a peaceful atmosphere. This situation is still more curious if you think that it survives in the centre of one of most active industrial districts (chairs) in Europe.
  Therefore this area merits not only a visit in the Abbey but also a nice walk along the little roads which connect about thirty wineries (often in buildings of great historical value): they are scattered over bizarre agglomerate of hills which alternate soft slopes with wild gorges, capable however to produce some of the most fine wines in the world, as Picolit, Pignolo, Ribolla gialla.  


To see

- The benedictine Abbey of Rosazzo, which maintains intact the ancient fortified structure of 1000 a.C., with church, cloister, tower, garden;
- the Poggiobello hill with Villa De Marchi of 1900 and the very nice medieval Corte Michelloni and S.Egidio Chapel of 1000;
- typical houses in some hamlets: Michelloni House and other ones in Azzano, some ones in Oleis; medieval house at Noax; fort-house Deciani in Case;
- religious buildings: the San Pietro Church of 1000 in the Abbey; San Gerolamo of 1600 in Azzano; the Parish Church in Oleis; the Madonna d’Aiuto Sanctuary of 1600-1900 at Gramogliano, suburb of Corno di Rosazzo; the San Giacomo Apostolo chapel of 1500 in Noax.
- castles: Perusini Castle (with four towers) of 1500 at Rocca Bernarda; the Tower of 1300 at Gramogliano;
- Palaces: Villa Pontoni of 1700 in Ipplis; Palazzo Braida (with astronomical observatory) of 1900 and Corte Masieri of 1700 in Oleis; the complex of Villa Romano of 1700 in Case; Villa Trento of 1500 near Dolegnano (difficult to see); Villa Moroldi of 1600 and Villa Perusini of 1800 (with innovative cellar-tower of 2000) at Gramogliano.



  The whole area is covered by little dirt roads for the transit of vehicles for cultivating vineyards and woods, then it is easy to walk everywhere. Though there are some little steep valleys (the soil is composed with the ‘ponca’, marly material very crumbly), then you should pay a bit of attention to not venture, out the paths, over untidy slopes. (see the main paths, draw with green points, in the map)
