Route description

The trail passes through a residential area and then through a number of Carnic villages in the valley. The walk is mostly on paved roads, except for the central section which crosses an open area of high ground from south to north, offering first panoramic views towards the Tagliamento Valley and then of the Degano Valley. And, on the way, lovely views of the villages dotted along the two rivers (the Tagliamento and the Degano). Along the walk you will find a number of tree habitats: hornbeam, ash and hazel (in the drier soils) and then the tall trees: beech, hornbeam, ash, oak, spruce and some red fir. As you descend to Raveo and then on to Enemonzo you will pass through areas that were once fields which have now been reforested.

The Pieve of St. Hilary and Tatian

Original building of  the Church (Pieve) of Saints Ilario and Taziano in Enemonzo goes back to the XI-XII century, when the Church  joined the Church of saints Felice e Fortunato di Aquileia. The present building, as well as many of its furnishings and paintings, dates back to an eighteenth century renovation.  The high altar (1738), in grey and red marble, houses its saints on its sides, who you can also see depicted in a painting in the sanctuary. The murals on the ceiling of the nave - partly damaged by the earthquake of 1976 - are the work of the painter Osoppo Antonio Fabris, made between 1855 and 1856.

Opening times:

The church is normally open over the weekend in July and August to the first days of September, as well as in conjunction with any event or celebration. For those who intend to visit the church on other days / times, is possible to request an extraordinary opening, by clicking here
