Church of San Nicola

Description

The Church of Santa Maria della Consolazione, known also as the Church of San Nicola, sits on the opposite hill, among splendid vineyards. It dates back to the sixteenth century and, inside, an extremely rare example of a sixteenth-century organ (1588), built by the Antegnati family, has been preserved in an excellent condition. After being exquisitely restored, is still used today for concerts.

The church and convent dominate the surrounding countryside, which is cultivated and slopes down to the Brembo River. It is also a place of excellent wine and good cuisine.
