Built in the 13th century, the church is dedicated to St. Blaise, who was probably a Bishop coming from Sebaste in Armenia, and whose martyrdom was supposed to hark back to 316 AD.

The frescoes indoor have been painted through different ages, ranging from the 14th to 16th centuries. It is now a fact that an Iron Age fort used to be located nearby, as testified by the numerous archaeological findings and Sanzeno-type pottery. In the 16th century the site was also known as a "castellar", and was a fief of the Prince-Bishop of Trento. It is actually very likely the church was included in a fortified structure, which has then disappeared leaving only the chapel. The church features a single nave, preceded by a large porch and ending in a polygonal apse, as well as a ribbed vaulted ceiling.

You can reach the church with an easy walk of about 30 minutes from the centre of Levico Terme.

The church is open to visitors every Monday from 11/6 to 16/9 from 16.00 to 18.00 (Gruppo Pensionati Levico Terme).
