Description

The Suardi family in Trescore Balneario opens the doors of the Oratory in Villa Suardi’s park, to admire the frescoes by Lorenzo Lotto, commissioned to the artist more than six hundred years ago by the then Count Suardi.

Dedicated to Santa Barbara and Santa Brigida, the Oratory is a rectangular building with wooden beams that give it a rustic atmosphere. It is maintained by the frescoes by the great artist, populated by characters from all social classes, even the more working-class ones.
