  • My great great grandparents were married here. Beautiful pastoral lands all around. You can feel the rich Italian history here.  more »
  • This place is a true gem, a most intimate, beautiful, richly decorated church that lets you feel connected to something... whether it is to your spiritual self, to the people who for centuries have.....  more »
  • The church is truly majestic thanks to its dominant position, the Romanesque-Gothic façade and the interior consists of five naves completely covered by frescoes and paintings. A church with ancient history (it is mentioned indirectly already in 1039) that starting from a simple nave oriented from east to West was gradually widened and transformed thanks to the richness that Baceno obtained from the trades: it is not a coincidence that on the façade is portrayed A huge St. Christopher (of 1542), patron of those merchants who connected the Duchy of Milan to Switzerland and that the place for the payment of duties was little under the church. Not to be missed. Bring €2 to turn on the internal lighting system.

  • Located on a rocky outcrop, which allows a wide view of the valley below and the Alps, it has interesting architectural features in the interior path of the church. From the inside there is also a path that leads to a chapel, also visible externally, dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes. Following the path to the side of the church you can also reach the horrids of Uriezzo, recommended for geomorphological aspects.
