San Daniele in Friuli is a village in Udine district, in Friuli Venezia Giulia. Is situated on a hill in the middle of a lowland, near the Tagliamento.
The village offers several points of interest, including the Cathedral of San Michele Arcangelo, built in the eighteenth century. The cathedral has three naves and houses the painting of the Holy Trinity along with other works of religious art. The façade was rebuilt several times and the bell tower dating back to the mid-500 is still incomplete.
Next to the cathedral there is the Guarneriana Library, one of the oldest libraries in Europe and the largest in Friuli. Is located in the building that previously housed the municipality, houses 12,000 ancient books and manuscripts, miniatures and precious works including rare edition of the Inferno of Dante and the Levantine Bible.
In the Church of Sant’Antonio Abate, we can admire beautiful frescoes painted in three cycles from three hundred to five hundred by different artists. The beauty of these works of art and their artistic value have earned the nickname of the Sistine church in Friuli. On the facade in Venetian Gothic style there’s an openwork rose window and stained glass mosaic, and the figures of Saint Anthony, Saint Anthony of Padua and St. John the Baptist.
In addition, the village of San Daniele is known for the production of the renowned DOP ham that bears its name.
