  • The church is truly majestic thanks to its dominant position, the Romanesque-Gothic façade and the interior consists of five naves completely covered by frescoes and paintings. A church with ancient history (it is mentioned indirectly already in 1039) that starting from a simple nave oriented from east to West was gradually widened and transformed thanks to the richness that Baceno obtained from the trades: it is not a coincidence that on the façade is portrayed A huge St. Christopher (of 1542), patron of those merchants who connected the Duchy of Milan to Switzerland and that the place for the payment of duties was little under the church. Not to be missed. Bring €2 to turn on the internal lighting system.

  • Located on a rocky outcrop, which allows a wide view of the valley below and the Alps, it has interesting architectural features in the interior path of the church. From the inside there is also a path that leads to a chapel, also visible externally, dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes. Following the path to the side of the church you can also reach the horrids of Uriezzo, recommended for geomorphological aspects.

  • You don't expect to see such a particular church in the middle of four cottages. Under the portise in the shade of summer you can enjoy the view of the landscape. However the church is closed, so it is not possible to visit it. Outside the church there was supposed to be some kind of refuge, but even that was closed, (August month).

  • The church already fascinates only from the outside, especially the back and side that rises on rocks. The interior is open-mouthed: five aisles slightly uphill towards the altar makes it special and unique, beautiful frescoes in almost every corner of the church. Visited around 5 p.m. on a midsummer day: the light that penetrates makes the paintings stand out.

  • Church of an unexpected beauty. A jewel of art and spirituality. You come in and you look at her first, then you pray. It's 1100. He's got an incredible story. Now I read everything to find out more. So you see them in Rome.
