SS. Quirico e Giulitta Veglio

Comments

Located in an isolated spot outside the hamlet of Veglio where originally stood a small medieval church of which only remains the apse (now a side chapel). It is considered one of the most beautiful and intact examples of 11-12th century architecture of the area. The first chapel upon entering was built in the presbytery of the medieval church and is dedicated to the Virgin. In the niche of the impressive marble Baroque altar is a small wooden statue of the revered Madonna and Child (Madonna delle Grazie). From the sides of the altar is access to medieval apse and original paintings of the XIII - XIV century.
