It contains 3 chapels, one dedicated to St. Joseph of 1600; one dedicated to St. Catherine of the early '400s and the last containing a stone bathtub from the 8th century. Dc. The college includes the bell tower, the cloister and other buildings, now also a Museum. Absolutely to visit like the whole village.
Affascinante sia dall'esterno che all'interno, soprattutto le cappelle laterali. Il chiostro purtroppo è chiuso nei giorni feriali. more »Fascinating from both the outside and the inside, especially the side chapels. The cloister is unfortunately closed on weekdays.
It Is really worth entering to admire this pfantastical church dating back to 1122. The interior is very simple and austere if not for a beautifully frescoed side cap. The entrance to the church is free while lighting the lights to illuminate the nave or the frescoes of the chapel costs only €0.50. A small contribution to help the preservation of a beautiful monument!
It's a little gem. Spend half a day.
If you could see something... Lights off that do not allow you to enjoy the interior. It Is possible to turn on, for about 1 minute, those of a lateral zone and the central nave paying 50 cents. This solution has bothered me a lot
The collegiate (also known as the Church of St. Mary), the Palace of the Podestà (right in front of the collegiate) and the Rocca Viscontea are the 3 jewels of Castell'Arquato; The church is located in the medieval village, in Piazza del Municipio, which unfortunately is defaced by too many parked cars; The present collegiate church was completed in 1122, and the interior was restored in 900; Enter 5 photos of the Palazzo del Podestà.
This magnificent church has certainly affected us; First of all, as an integral part of the beautiful village of Castell'Arquato, but also for some peculiarities. In a particular way, I refer to a side section of the structure with a Baroque style that contrasts in a clear way with the most sober lines of the rest of the building. Also, I saw that at the nearby courtyard there is a museum that however we were unable to visit for time matters. It is undoubtedly Worth a more thorough visit, like the whole village in general, on the other hand.
