Church Of St. Antony The Great Of Tower

Strada Provinciale 6


This church has a Romanic structure. It was built in the middle of 1300 by Alberto de Regazzoni in honor of St Antony . There are sixteenth-century frescos by an unknown artist that you can find inside. Among the most interesting depicted subjects there are the ones painted on the second arch toward to the presbitery. On left you can find depicted Christ on a sepulchre and Virgin Mary with the child and St. Roch. In the centre of the arch there's the Virgin coronation. In 1566 began the building of the bell tower annexed to the church. The bell tower has a belfry open double-arched window on each side.
The facade was twice demolished and rebuilt because of avalanches in 1598 and 1702.
