  • The Church is part of this former convent has been in recent years of extensive restoration and conservation work carried out by the passion of volunteers who have dedicated time and energy, not only physical, to return the Church to old glory. The complex offers due to its elevated position views of the peat bogs. II oldest part of the monastery dates back to the 11th century. The restoration of the interior walls of the Church has allowed us to bring to light beautiful frescoes. Deserves to lead the tour by paying a small fee to enjoy the commitment and dedication of these volunteers are not limited only to describe the Church but also the natural environment surrounding it with historical notes.

  • Opening time: DISCIPLINE-CLOISTER SATURDAY-Sunday-holidays summer (April-October) 10.00/12.00-15.00/18.00 winter (November-March) 10.00/12.00-14.00/17.00 the former convent, located near Normanby, near the highway that leads to the Lake. The building, from its position (stands on an eminence in the morainic Amphitheatre of sebino), dominates the "blades" of bogs from which, in fact, derives its name. The structure underwent several reconstructions and renovations that early Romanesque setting that only stravolsero outside still prevails. It is a small complex of religious and civil buildings placed above a hill guarding the area, once swampy, it comes from the term lamosa. II oldest part of the monastery of San Pietro in Lamosa, Provaglio d'iseo, maybe placed on the site of a Roman temple to Mithras, dates back to the 11th century. The building of Romanesque features was donated to the monks of Cluny, which in the four centuries of their stay the enlarged further. In 1536 became the property of the canons regular of San Salvatore in Brescia, and the Church was enlarged with the addition of the Chapel to the left of the portal (1555). The frescoes preserved tells the story of Jesus from birth up to the intake and is dated to the early 16th century but the author is unknown. Worthy of attention is also the baroque chapel in front of the Church. The frescoes are dated to the XV and XVI century

  • A great place to visit and thanks a lot to the passionated person who very kindly made us discover all the parts of this site.
  • Peaceful place, breathtaking view
  • Definitely worth the visit. ATTENTION AT THE TIME OF METER, MUNICIPAL AUTHORITIES ARE ALL TOO THICK AND HEFTY FINES LIGIA. The place turned out to be a treat, full of history readable in all stages. The volunteers of the Association that takes care of the Church, then, are absolutely available and loved that place. Particular the statue of Christ of the 1200, straw and wood pulp, in case of 1500. Impressive frescoes and valuable organ. Also interesting are the various burial manholes. Try also to request the opening of the burial chapel. The Hall of battuti, I can only say that if I hadn't come back to extend the parking lot and didn't diligently found a nice fine (20 minute delay), I would have continued the visit ... P.s.: the Hall is managed by the municipality!

  • To see absolutely. This ancient monastery, near the bogs of Provaglio, encompasses a multitude of fragments of frescoes three-; Paul from Caylina the younger was attributed a side chapel. Of great importance is also the sixteenth-century fresco cycle on the life of Christ, in the discipline next to the Church.

  • Partially open freely on Saturdays and Sundays. Beautiful monastery with great view on peatlands. You should also visit the main courtyard with well. Recommend to visit the complex if you are in the area.
