Storia

The village sits at the confluence of the Canal del Ferro and Val D’Aupa and is divided into two parts: Moggio di Sotto and Moggio di Sopra.

Surrounded by Carnic and Julian Alps, is a point of interest for tourists who decide to visit the Friuli Venezia Gulia

The history of the town dates back to Roman times, but the prestige gets in the Middle Ages. The Abbey of St. Gallen was consecrated on June 9thj,1119 which were granted vast properties in Carinthia, Friuli and Carnia. The patriarch also granted supremacy over the churches of Cavazzo, Dignano and Gorto.

In the historical complex of the Abbey you can visit the cloister, the Monastery of the Poor Clares and Sacramentine, place that welcomes pilgrims and visitors, the Palazzo delle Prigioni, an ancient medieval tower now used to host exhibitions of various kinds and the Abbey Library.

Just outside the walls you can find the stone “Stock” (or the pillory) of 1653, one of the last four remained in Friuli Venezia Giulia.

The municipality has several suburbs now depopulated. The most important is Bevorchians, which is located in Val D’Aupa and has about 15 locations between villages, hamlets and scattered agglomerates including a height difference of over 300 m, and from where you can make several excursions.

The town was a victim, in 1976, of the earthquake that shocked the Friuli Venezia Giulia, suffering substantial damages, but still keeping its charm.

Moggio Udinese in the winter period is embellished by the Nativity scene Masters who with their artistic works populate the shop windows and the Palazzo delle Prigioni.
