  • Built in 1450, in red brick, the Church is all that remains of the large 14th century Monastery of Santa Maria di Cantalupo, suppressed in 1782, the Napoleonic laws.

  • This church, built by Pietro Antonio Solari in about 1450 on an existing ESA. XIII, is all that remains of the great fourteenth-century monastery of Santa Maria di Cantalupo, suppressed in 1798 Napoleon's laws and finally demolished in the years to follow. The church--built and named in honor of St. Bernardine of Siena, the famous preacher died a few years earlier (1444)-owes its present appearance to a large part in the restoration carried out in 1922 by Adolfo Z. The Interior has a single nave, houses some frescoes of the four to five hundred, all of the Lombard school.

  • Small gem.
  • Wow
  • The pretty little church by the discreet charm. The Interior is decorated with noteworthy frescoes, which is in preparation for a well-deserved restoration.
