The first thing you will notice arriving to the centre of Udine is the Castle. It was originally built in the 1517 by the Venetians, and Giovanni da Udine resurrected it again in 1547. 


One of the most ancient Parliament Halls of Europe is situated within the Castle. You will also notice the Gothic-Venetian Style of the buildings with the elegant designs and the frescoes that decorate the buildings, such as the Palazzo Arcivescovile, the Cathedral and the Oratorio della Purita. 

The Cathedral is one of the city’s most important buildings and it is found in the Piazza Duomo. It was built by the Patriarch Berthold of Andechs-Merania and had a typical Franciscan structure. We can see the bell tower that was built in 1441 and the Baroque style that spreads within its walls. 

Walking to the south side of the Cathedral we can see the Oratorio Della Purita, the Oratory for girls. Udine Street’s are built in a way that gives the pedestrian an advantage. The needlelike alleys and the flat street give a nice atmosphere that will please any visitor.
