  • The Church is impressive and very beautiful with their many ceiling paintings. It is very disturbing that you now begin to require entrance fees of CHF 5.00 for churches. You justified this, is there an exhibition there, but only the Church was interested in us. Now you must decide want you for a fee visit the Church or not, in our eyes a Krista!

  • In Switzerland, shortly after passing Splugen, going in the direction of the via Mala, you come across the village of Zillis. Stop to admire the Church of San Martino because is a gem. Outside is very simple, while the Interior is spectacular for the ceiling painting that earned the Church its name of Sistina in the Alps. The ceiling consists of 153 wooden panels. The peripheral areas, which is the outer loop divided into 48 panels, represent the seas populated by fantastic beings, while the corners are depicted the four winds. In the central areas, the inner loop divided into 105 panels, is narrated the life of Jesus until the crowning with thorns, complete with seven tables that tell the legend of the patron of the Church. You look at all with the help of a mirror. It is truly spectacular: don't turn away
