    I confess that I didn't know and I had never heard of Castiglione Olona. Mea culpa, of course, and the surprise and satisfaction were still greater than normal. The machine will leave you in a comfortable parking in early climb, just after the Church of the most Holy body of Christ. Follow then the remaining piece walking (2 min) and arrive at the ticket office. Tickets cost €6 and allows access to the Church, the baptistery and the Museum. Caution If you want to take pictures you should purchase a second ticket also cost add to €6. The visit is led within the Church and the Baptistery. The fresco cycle is truly magnificent, well preserved and explained so knowledgeable and passionate from great guide. The duration of the entire visit and an hour and a half. The Museum is very small and with very few pieces. Church and baptistery on the other hand are a true splendour and deserve your visit. Vote 10!

    The collegiate church is a beautiful Pearl in Castiglione old accessed after a climb a bit challenging. The Museum is interesting, the frescoes are the famous Masolino da Panicale, Masaccio's most famous collaborator. Recommended

    Visited almost accidentally and was really amazed by the beauty of this place. The village of Castiglione Olona is already interesting, but the collegiate church is really something to be missed. A guide explained very well the characteristics of the structure. Really impressive frescoes. I didn't think there was a gem like this in our province!

  • astonishing well preserved fresco painting. Worth the visit! we were extremely well received by two ladies in the entrance that work there as a volunteers
  • "One thing I ask of the Lord, and that I seek: dwell in the House of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and meditate in his temple" Sal 27 I don't find words more appropriate to describe this place, infinitely beautiful and engaging, enriched by precious frescoes by Masolino da Panicale. The baptistery, in particular, is a marvelous work.

  • The Collegiata di Castiglione Olona in Gothic Lombard was consecrated in 1425. Now part of a museum complex that includes three new exhibition halls and the famous baptistery. Masolino da Panicale has signed his masterpiece, transit from the middle ages to the Renaissance. The Director Wim Wenders called it: "A very spiritual place."
