Church of San Giorgio Martire


Though it's a small town, Preone relies on a very united community and offers numerous reasons for a visit. Its name recalls that it was one of the very first human settlements in Carnia and it is referenced in the name of Preondactylus Buffarinii, one of the oldest Pterosaurs ever found in the world. This was one of the extremely important fossils (shrimps, fish, plants, small reptiles) found in the paleontological area of the Seazza river.

In the area, there are also the Arzino springs and waterfalls, a pristine jewel of nature set in fairytale beech woods, and the Vallo Littorio fortifications.

The church of San Giorgio Martire houses numerous fine frescoes, including those by Antonio Taddio (19th century), the Annunciation by Andrea Orsaria, Saint George and the Dragon by Giacomo Tesari (dating back to 1945), and the Crucifixion by Palma il Giovane (around 1570).
