Socchieve / The Parish Church of San Martino

The church, whose architectural form is typical of the area, is one of Carnia’s most characteristic religious buildings. The exterior has a portico entrance and bell gable, while a truss vault covers the interior hall. Within the church itself, there are many important art works, such as the remains of Romanesque mural paintings in the sacristy and apse, including an impressive portrait of Christ framed by a mandorla with symbols of the Evangelists; in the presbytery and choir vault there is a splendid cycle of frescoes (1493) and an altarpiece (1511) by Gianfrancesco da Tolmezzo, whose untimely death from the plague prevented its completion.
