  • It is a pretty village church with all its painted walls as is the case in Italy. The nearby baptistery has been restored but was closed at the time of our visit. On the other hand in the Church we can access a crypt which has just also be restored and which dates at least to the 11th century. It is said that the oldest stones remontreraient to 535 (surprisingly accurate!). The whole gives an impression of calm and incredible piety.

  • Small church (for the size of the country is perfect) and welcoming. Not very rich of decorations but still very cute

  • From the outside this church appears agreeable and expect something nice inside but ... get a little disappointment! In addition to the baptistery there is more!! Everything is rather neglected which is a shame ... I wonder why!?!?! A waste unforgivable

  • On the way down that detaches from the main road is the Church of Santo Stefano, remarkable building with three naves and chapels, medieval Foundation on early Christian Archaeology and maybe even pay. The most interesting part of the complex is the Romanesque crypt opens under the presbytery: the interior space, with a triple apse, is divided into five sections turn cruise and presents the walls remains of frescoes from the 14th and 16th centuries. The bell tower stands in a corner position and is noteworthy for the concert of 8 bells. Interestingly, on the side of the Church, a stone Roman found on site. Detached from the Church, there is the baptistery, beautiful Romanesque building of the late 11th century octagonal, polygonal apse and small square bell tower, today intended to exhibit space. Retrieved from "discovering the Tremezzina" (Francis Salazar, Edizioni New Press 2017).
