Ponte del Ram

Mountain Cultural/natural/religious point of interest


Situated to the south of the village, at the entrance to the Calanca valley, there is an elegant twin-arch stone bridge over the abandoned bed of the river Calancasca. Extended in 1822 when the San Bernardino carriageway was built, it probably dates back to the time of the Trivulzio family (1480). It forms a scenic picture with the surrounding countryside which includes a terraced vineyard with a small octagonal pergola at the top.

Oratorio dei SS. Rocco e Sebastiano

Mountain Cultural/natural/religious point of interest


This Baroque-style oratory (rebuilt in 1615, extension and new furnishings 1690-1715) blends well with the small square in the middle of the village; there is an interesting painting on the fa?ade (Our Lady of Milk and the patron saints of the church) and some rich Baroque stucco work in the choir.

Chiesa di S. Clemente

Mountain Cultural/natural/religious point of interest


Set above the village (first documented in 1219), it has a Romanesque bell tower on the north side and two 18th-century painted sundials (one with an allegory of death). Inside, the nave with painted coffered ceiling (late 17th century), choir with rich late-Baroque stucco decorations and three Rococo altars are worthy of note. On one wall of the nave there is a 15th-century preparatory sketch of Saint George and the dragon.
