Church of San Vigilio Martire
Place of worship built on history and in 18th-century style
The Parish Church of San Vigilio (martyr bishop of Trento) dates back to the 18th century and was built on the remains of a pre-existing church that had been built to replace a medieval chapel. The structure is situated in a dominant position on a hillock on the northern side of the valley; due to the size of the structure and the almost direct view of the valley, it is taken as a landmark for the entire valley. The building has a façade with central openings, including a large marble entrance door and an upper rectangular window, while the interior has a single nave with an elliptical vaulted roof with large, deep side chapels on either side. Next to the church are a sacristy and bell tower with their own structure, oriented according to the layout of the pre-existing church. The frescoes by the Veronese painter Giorgio Anselmi, dating back to the second half of the 18th century, are of great artistic and cultural interest.
