Unusual shape for a church but nice frescoes
Sep 2018 • Couples
Located on Piazza XX Settembre, this church stands our because of its impressive facade, the double curved staircase that leads to the main entrance, and the simple and modest cross that stands between the staircases. Completed almost 350 years ago, this working church was built in an elliptical shape. It has gone through hard times, and the latest restoration is more than 100 years old. It is worth the visit, especially because of the frescoes attributed to Pietro Paolo Operti, from the neighboring community of Braida. In addition to the main altar, the church houses six side altars, three on each side. The only remnant of the original 18th century building is the bell tower.

A church once again
Oct 2018 • Couples
The church was built in 1752 in an elliptical plan with six side altars. Sadly, it was requisitioned by the Savoy state in 1795 and sold to a private individual who used it as military housing, an ammunition depot, and for salt storage.

In 1906 the Church was purchased by the Capuchin Fathers who undertook complete restoration and reopen it for worship.
