  • It's open until 17.30 whereby for 2 nights I watched only from outside (has plenty of parking near that also serves the gondola Doss del Sabion and the gate is opened, the entrance courtyard there is a fountain with water that comes straight from the source). Already seeing it so with the famous painting by Baschenis "Danse Macabre" located under the sloping roof and very well preserved, the Church we had enjoyed it. However, we returned during the day to see it better and I wish you all the luck that we had me and my husband: inside there was the historian Giuseppe Chacha that for one hour explained the history of the Church and all exterior and Interior. It was a wonderful experience because it allowed us to understand what jewel had faced. In addition to the famous painting outside, inside I loved the Crucifixion, always by Baschenis, because one of the few pre-style Council of Trent (the Council prohibited to paint Mary slumped at the cross in an attitude of despondency). From the words of Chacha you know it's truly in love with this work (it has also dedicated a great file) much to lend themselves to explain it for free to those who visit. I would say that you can't walk around here without stopping.

  • Beautiful cemetery Church, located outside the village of Pinzolo (East), famous for the ' dance of death ' painted on its southern side by Simon Baschenis, 1539. Dating back to the 10th century, has seen various phases, the last of which, in 1515, awarded him the current arrangement: three naves with deep chancel concluded from a polygonal apse; gabled façade preceded by the Bell Tower with illuminated by four mullioned Windows and pyramidal in masonry; smooth sides, on the South side (the one embellished with frescoes) has two arched Lancet Windows and a trap door. The Interior has three naves turn cruise, with double-wide central than the lateral ones. The presbytery, introduced by the Holy arch presents a rich fresco decoration by Simon Baschenis. To see!!
