Map:

The origins of Buja are really old, but its castle, the first settlement, was probably built around the mid -6th century AD. Already mentioned in a document by Charles the Great in 792, Buja is mentioned again – with Fagagna, Gruagno, Braitan and Udine – also in the famous Ottone II’s diploma of 983. Restored after the 1976 earthquake, the pieve of S. Lorenzo in Monte, built in a place that had always been inhabited, is notable for the late 14th-century frescoes by an unknown Friulian painter portraying scenes from the life of the Virgin and visible on the barrel vault of a small chapel. The church also contains a large altarpiece with St. Lorenzo’s martyrdom and two paintings with episodes from the Saint’s life: this is what remains of a large wooden altar carved and painted by Giovanni Battista Grassi (1558). Moreover, wooden statues (15th cent.) are doubtfully attributed to Domenico da Tolmezzo, who, instead, is certainly the author of a beautiful statue of Virgin with Child (1481) in the church of Madonna di Buja. The neo-Gothic duomo of S. Stefano, partly destroyed in the earthquake, was rebuilt. In the church of S. Pietro at Avilla, there is a peculiar Via Crucis with panels by well-known contemporary artists.
