Rigolato is renown in Carnia especially for the peculiar way its inhabitants have of pronouncing the -o sound and for the fact that its districts are crowded up to the steep slopes of the mountains of Val Degano. Gracco, Givigliana, Valpicetto count among the most picturesque villages in Carnia, boasting splendid examples of rural architecture. Now that the copper and silver mines of nearby Mount Avanza are no longer exploited, the town thrives mainly on agriculture, exploitation of the surrounding woods and most of all tourism, thanks to its ideal location in the mountains. The parish church, probably built on a design by Domenico Schiavi, contains a lovely high altar in polychrome marble, while traces of 14th-century frescoes and some interesting wooden statues may be found in the church of Vuezzis. Modest quality 16th-century frescoes by unknown artist decorate the choir walls in the church of S. Barbara at Valpicetto and in the small church of Gracco is a wooden altar of 1688.
