Church of San Rocco

Upstream of the ancient centre of Collio rises the stately Church of San Rocco, along the road leading to the alpine hamlet of Memmo. Visitors first glimpse the large volume of the semi-circular main apse dating back to the end of the 15th century. This is the most interesting portion of the outside of the church as it still preserves, although worn, the original decoration of the rustic plasterwork with fine mortar joints designed to create masonry in horizontal rectangular ashlars. The site is one of the stages of the “Via del Sacro e dell’Arte” (Sacred and Art Route) of the Ecomuseum of Valle Trompia – The Mountain and Industry.
