Chiesa di S. Anna (Madonna del Ponte Chiuso)

Mountain Cultural/natural/religious point of interest


This impressive and harmoniously proportioned Baroque construction is one of the most interesting in the Mesolcina valley. It forms a scenic entrance to the Traversagna valley against the backdrop of the arched stone bridge and former hospice. The new church was consecrated in 1656. The body, built on a longitudinal plan in the Baroque style, is adorned with pilasters and graffiti architectural decorations, the nave with its cross vault is an early example of the so-called Wandpfeiler arrangement, subsequently developed by the Vorarlberg School (initially with builders from the Mesolcina valley). Numerous stucco decorations, paintings, altar and chapel ornaments have been preserved inside the church.

Chiesa di S. Giulio

Mountain Cultural/natural/religious point of interest


This large medieval building (first mentioned in 1219) has an impressive post-Romanesque bell tower. Inside there is a Romanesque-Gothic polygonal choir (around 1300), flanked by side chapels entirely decorated with Renaissance paintings by Gerolamo Gorla (1545, saints, prophets, the Fathers of the Church, scenes depicting Jesus).
