The Udine Cathedral was originally built in 1225 and restored several times. The brick fašade has three portals; the main entrance is surmounted by a lunette engraved with high relieves. The naves were frescoed by Giambattista Tiepolo, one of the most important rococo Italian painters. The church houses an important Museum of religious decorative arts.

Foto Udine: Castle's foreshortening
The Ancient City Castle, which was reported by documents since 983, was stricken by various earthquakes and hence restored several times. It is on a hill close to the city centre and overlooks the plain. The castle is mainly a Romanesque structure: it has a Parliament/council hall considered to be one of the most ancient of all Europe.
