  • Small church, closer in scale to a chapel, with some interesting frescoes.
  • At the low end of the square stands the Church of St John the Baptist, dating from the eleventh century. Inside, 16th century frescoes decorating the apse and the triumphal arch. On the southern wall, traces of three figures: Saint Christopher with the little Jesus, St. George on horseback, St John the Baptist; on the other, great Epiphany. Noteworthy, the triptych of Madonna and child, Saint George and Saint Martin. The Romanesque Bell Tower, built around the Lake, bells of 1730. Retrieved from "discovering the Tremezzina" (Francis Salazar, Edizioni New Press 2017).
