Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie
Just before you reach the ancient castle of Eggi on the right, you will come across this small but lovely church.
The simplicity of the architectural lines well be married with the rural environment yet, the majestic oak, Quercus pubescens Wild., 4.39 meters in circumference seems to protect it.
The church dates from the late fifteenth century, the oak, yet powerful and flourishing should have about 200 years. The simple building with a single nave covered by a gabled roof with beams gantry and semi-circular apse, is the traditional place of worship.
In front gabled opened four large windows, now closed, to allow travelers to worship the image of the Madonna painted in the apse from the outside. There are frescoes by local artists of the sixteenth century.
