Baceno. Church of San Gaudenzio



Situated on a rocky spur, the Church of San Gaudenzio is one of the best examples of Romanesque architecture in Italy. The present building is the result of an interesting superimposition of extensions from different periods. In fact, the earliest evidence of the church is in a document from the early eleventh century. The splendid Romanesque façade is made entirely of stone and on its right side one can admire a gigantic St Christopher painted in 1542. The Monumental Church of San Gaudenzio in Baceno at night is at its best, thanks to a recent work of implementation of the lighting points that further enhance its most relevant architectural aspects.
