  • The construction of the church has been dated back to the XI and XII centuries, although there are no written documents that testify this. The church went through at least two relevant structural interventions in the course of the centuries. The first, of the XV century, doubled the footprint surface of the building, and added the portico and the belltower. The second, achieved during following century, added the chapel, transformed the apse, and added construction of the sacristy. As far as the frescoes are concerned, the most ancient appear to be the "Madonna del Latte" and the "San Cristoforo" dating back to the mid-14th century. (Ticino.ch)
  • A well preserved historical evidence. This old church has seen so much oh history and historians are making efforts to restore and maintain it. There was a lady at the entrance who helps you to know the history and significance of the church and has other information on the hiking trails around the San Bernardo. A must see stop on your hike up to Ponte Tibetano.
