The medieval village of Clauiano is classified among the group of Best Rural Villages of Italy. Its foundation dates back to the XVI century, after the last Turkish invasion of Friuli. The village was originally made of three smaller sites, San Giorgio, San Martino and the corner of Piazza Giulia, direction Trivignano.

A couple of centuries later, the population expanded and formed a single larger village around the main square, that in origin was only a small lake for collection of raining waters.

Clauiano is known for the typical shape of the arches of its doors, that also often show in the middle a figure recalling the sun.

Several houses are worth visiting especially to see their courtyards, that often times are open in the back to the fields of the surrounding country.

In the main square of Clauiano, Azienda Agricola Foffani forms a very interesting structure, typical of an old farm preceding the Venetian villas, that ware built later.
