  • On the southern edge of the village of Spurano lies the Church of San Giacomo, which rises from the rocky shore next to a tiny Marina: the building, a simple apsed hall, was built in the 12th century along the Via Regina and enlarged in the 14th, When was added also the characteristic Bell Tower, originally a single arch. Inside, remarkable frescoes dating back to the Foundation of the Church, among them a large St. Christopher, patron saint of pilgrims, with obvious reference to transits the Via Regina. Retrieved from "discovering the Tremezzina" (Francis Salazar, Edizioni New Press 2017).
