CHURCH OF SANTA MARIA ASSUNTA DI MISMA

Description

Located on the southern slope of Mount Misma, in the municipal territory of Cenate Sopra, the Church of Santa Maria Assunta di Misma is a fascinating sacred site built around the year one thousand.

A Romanic jewel straddling the Seriana Valley and the Cavallina Valley, reachable only on foot following the red and white signs for the Italian Alpine Club path 607.

The Romanesque architecture of the church is very simple. There is a small bell tower next to a single rectangular room, which has a portico on its exterior, built on the side façade.

The interior of the church is characterised by three arches with small semi-circular apses that divide it into four bays, the last of which encloses the altar located in a central position.

Adjacent to the church there are two hostels, where you can stay for one night.

It can be visited on Sundays and public holidays, with free admission.

You can book tours for large groups.
