    A beautiful church frescoed by Baschenis, outside a danse macabre well preserved and very understandable. Nice inside. Almost every year a rally has as its focus the dance of Baschenis

    It's always fascinating to visit these buildings which remain unchanged over time and that follow the life of a community

    Outside you notice immediately the fresco of the danse macabre: one of the best preserved examples of macabre dances present in the Alps, well preserved, large, perfectly readable in its entirety; outside the cemetery is a sign with the transcription of the inscription accompanying figures depicted in the fresco. Reading, although it is an old Italian is very enjoyable and allows you to get an idea of how centuries ago people use with death: Council to devote a few minutes to read (and to some extent, meditation consequent!). The Interior of the Church has an entirely frescoed apse and traces of frescoes on the walls, with depictions of Saints of popular devotion (Cecilia, Lucy, Stefano etc.). A fresco in particular deserves attention: the descent of Christ into limbo (or into the realm of the dead) to free Adam, Eve and the Patriarchs. This is an episode not narrated in the Gospels but in apocryphal text; not very rare indeed, but still not that widespread. The fresco is in the upper register, to the left of the side entrance. The Church is worth visiting for its artistic and historical value, but also because the tranquility of the place, and the surrounding cemetery, make for a moment forget lindo the traffic and noise of the main street.

  • Rich in history and legend. There's a gentleman very kind waiting for tourists to let them be your guide. Explains the various paintings immersing yourself in history and in places.
