  • Nice pieve with superb Tower, located at the entrance of Filattiera low, surrounded by nature with cypress trees on the sides, interesting and definitely worth visiting

  • The Church of Sorano, in its simplicity, is in contrast to the many forts that overlook the river Magra. As many have noted is often closed unfortunately, but the vision is enough to admire its beauty. What instead appears to me incomprehensible is the presence of a convenience store right in front of the church square.

  • The Church appears to the eye of the traveler, which is located on the edge of the road, near the cemetery. Presents itself in all its integrity is externally and internally. Unfortunately is open, at the behest of Parson, only on Saturdays and Sundays during the works. Too bad! Fortunately we met the Lady of the House nearby that was in possession of the key and kindly let us entry.

  • Don't you have to appreciate the appearance of this parish, which at first glance may disappoint, but history that brings. Inside are preserved even ancient stone statues.

  • Beautiful pieve created with pebbles of the magra River. Recently rebuilt on the outside, still preserves the original lines. Inside also contains a couple of ancient stone statues. Thanks to its location along the road and ample parking is almost mandatory stop and admire it. Unfortunately it is often closed, leaving just a chance to admire the interiors.

  • Since magic value. The Church is located on existing settlements Pagans, it is shown by the statue stele unearthed under restoration. A layering of history, from the ancient and unknown peoples sculptors, to Roman (near the Church was found a farm, sadly overgrown due to lack of funds), until the present day. On one of the capitals there is a bas-relief depicting, apparently, a monkey with showy masculine attributes. In fact, probably, this is the God Bes. On the back of the church there is a Learning Center, hours of operation, where children can try their hand at games of "archeological dig"

  • The Church of Sorano, dedicated to Saint Stephen, located near Filattiera, in Lunigiana, along the Via Francigena, in an area of great historical interest. The Church is mentioned for the first time by Sigeric, Archbishop of Canterbury, on his journey to Rome in 990. In 1700 lost its importance because the population, because of the unhealthiness of the area for the frequent floods of the river Magra, had moved into the village of Filattiera, located in a higher position. Inside the Church, in 1924, was found at a depth of about two and a half meters, near the South aisle, the first statue-stele called Sorano I (now kept at the Museo delle Statue Stele of Lunigiana in the castle of Piagnaro in Pontremoli). In 1966 and 1967 were discovered, in the cemetery of the parish, two parts of steles identified as Sorano II and III and preserved them in Sorano Statue Stele Museum in Pontremoli. The Church is in Romanesque style, built entirely with pebbles from the nearby river Magra: the Interior has three naves, divided by strong pillars, ending with three apses; on the left side there is the mighty bell tower with a square base. Inside it is still visible a menhir.

  • Impossible to visit the Interior! It is only open on certain days of the year and there are no indications about a possible caretaker to get the keys
