Mentioned in documents two hundred years before the year 1000, the rural parish church of SS. Pietro and Paolo in Dignano is one of the oldest in Friuli, although the present building dates from the earliest 16th century, with later remodelling and enlarging. On the façade and inside, on the left wall, are traces of Gothic frescoes; under the arch and on the choir ribbed vault is a cycle of frescoes by Giovanni Pietro da Spilimbergo (1504) representing Evangelists, Doctors of the Church and Saints. Giuseppe Buzzi seems to have been the author of the 18thcentury frescoes in the left aisle showing scenes from the Passion. The 18th-century parish church of S. Sebastiano (the tall columns of the atrium date from the 1800s) preserves a late 18th-century altar by Giacomo Pischiutti with two statues by Giacomo Contiero (1749), frescoes by Giovanni Moro in the presbytery and two paintings (St. Urbano and St. Gallo) by Bernardino Blaceo dating from the 16th century. Finally, S. Giorgio at Carpacco has an altar by Giampietro da S. Vito (1509).
