Among the works contained in the church of S. Giacomo (early 17th cent., while the imposing bell tower dates from 1732) is the wood covering of the baptismal font (1672-73) by a certain ‘Zuane’, a master carver from Gemona. Built on a hexagonal plan, the church contains four carved scenes from the Baptist’s life and two fantastic landscapes; on top of the dome is the statue of the Baptist. Inside are paintings by G. Angeli (the Happy Death of St. Joseph after Piazzetta’s style, 18th cent.), O. Politi, a native of Clauzetto and the leading Neoclassical painter in Friuli (St. John the Baptist, 1824), V. Tramontin (Gabriel Archangel and Our Lady of the Annunciation, 1949). Noteworthy are also the high altar and the altar of Purgatory souls (18th cent.). Beside the church of San Paolo and the oratory of San Giuseppe at Dominisia, a worthwhile walk is to the charming ‘grotta verde’ (green cave) at Pradis, one of whose walls was the background in 2002 of a much debated performance by U.S. artist Jenny Holzer.
