The Abbey of Rosazzo is located in the Colli Orientali (eastern hills) of Friuli in an isolated area twenty kilometres from Udine and ten kilometres from the Slovenian border. From the Abbey the visitors can admire a wonderful view on the vineyards and surrounding hills. The origins of the over one thousand year old abbey are still not fully known. During this time and still today, in part thanks to its geographical location, the abbey has been a crossroads between east and west, a place where different cultures meet and exchange.

The abbey of Rosazzo is famous for its ancient roses planted all around the abbey (there are the most important families of old garden roses  such as gallica, alba, damask, centifolia, noisette, bourbon, China, wichurana) as well as numerous modern garden varieties. In Rosazzo you can visit the oldest winery of Friuli Venezia Giulia of the XIII century.

The guide will accompany the visitors to an unforgettable journey into the history and secrets of the Rosazzo Abbey.

Reservation mandatory.

The visit is multilingual.

The Abbey of Rosazzo is located in the Colli Orientali (eastern hills) of Friuli in an isolated area twenty kilometres from Udine and ten kilometres from the Slovenian border. From the Abbey the visitors can admire a wonderful view on the vineyards and surrounding hills. The origins of the over one thousand year old abbey are still not fully known. During this time and still today, in part thanks to its geographical location, the abbey has been a crossroads between east and west, a place where different cultures meet and exchange.

The abbey of Rosazzo is famous for its ancient roses planted all around the abbey (there are the most important families of old garden roses  such as gallica, alba, damask, centifolia, noisette, bourbon, China, wichurana) as well as numerous modern garden varieties. In Rosazzo you can visit the oldest winery of Friuli Venezia Giulia of the XIII century.

The guide will accompany the visitors to an unforgettable journey into the history and secrets of the Rosazzo Abbey.

Reservation mandatory.
