Molveno is the ideal holiday destination if you wish to combine cultural tourism with relax and sports activity. The Little Church of Saint Vigilio is located in the cemetery of Molveno, it dates back to the 13th century and it is dedicated to Saint Vigilio, one of Trento’s bishops, who died in 400 b.C.
It is listed in the items of the cultural heritage protected by the Autonomous Province of Trento, due to its particular artistic value. The conservative renovation works of the walls and frescoes took place in the period between 1991 and 1995.
The facade, protected by a small roof in shingles of wood, is particularly interesting for the series of frescoes decorating the upper part. The church has a beautiful door with a frescoed lunette, depicting scenes of the “Redeemer, the Madonna and Saint Johannes”. Inside you find the simultaneous presence of a primitive church in Romanic style of the 13th century, and a later gothic church, dating back to 1536.READ ALL
