Parish Church of Santa Maria di Gorto

Situated on a rocky spur is the parish church of Santa Maria di Gorto, one of the oldest buildings of Friuli. The church is mentioned in documents in 1136 and 1299, but its origins would seem to be even older. This was demonstrated by the discovery of sculptural elements that can be attributed to a religious site dating back to the 8th century. The parish church stands as a basilica with three aisles and preserves valuable and rare relics like the frescoes of the 12th-13th century, depicting the Gospel parable of the ten virgins. A short distance from the parish church is the environmental tourist complex of Aplis, with the Museum of Wood and the Venetian Sawmill, a wildlife exhibition, a hotel and a restaurant, the perfect refreshment spot.
