  • The frescoes in the Church are spectacular and the building is well worth a visit when you are in Boves (this church is not in the country but about 25 min walk to the Centre). Nice is also the Christmas mass but you should arrive approximately 45 minutes earlier to find a seat.

  • Just a few minutes from the Centre of Boves, in 1261 this Chapel belonged to the Benedictines, and stood in a wooded area, a resting place for pilgrims and travellers, over time the chapel purchase in role of Shrine, where peasant who lived and processional landmark nearby. This sanctuary and rich of magnificent frescoes. Under the pavement archaeological items have been found which confirm the existence of a religious building from the Romanesque period. You can't leave the area without seeing! Seems to get into a little Sistine Chapel, if I may be allowed the combination ...

  • It rises in the green outskirts of the small town of Cuneo (double gold medal civil and military valour). During a day dedicated to the research of the late Gothic fresco piemontese we landed here: a worthy conclusion. Feature the presence – in the same environment – three distinct, distinguishable and clear paintings of different periods and styles that make it a rarity. The nave has two painting cycles perfectly recovered of the ' 400 (life of Jesus) and 500 (a large last judgement-including a Leviathan that closely resembles the bas-relief found in the crypt of the Cathedral of Bourges), while the apse offers the ' 600 and ' 700 (the crowning of Mary on the vault). Free access. Deserves greater disclosure (and possible audio guide) to the cost of collection and simple enjoyment that the place offers now. Absolutely worth visiting.
