Sacred art

Stone worked by skilled stonemasons shows evidence of early Christianity in the Alps, and enormous medieval and late medieval frescoes by dynasties of itinerant painters.

Not to mention the large cycles that teach followers precepts and biblical passages or represent the particularly important moments of a community. Museums, churches, capitals, monasteries, chapels and tabernacles offer an extraordinary heritage of sacred art just waiting to be discovered, always with something new. The close relationship is shown between religion and man, as well as the work of extraordinary artists.

 

Museo Diocesano Tridentino
The museum is situated in the ancient and central Palazzo Pretorio, the residence of the Prince Bishop from the Late Middle Ages. Today, it houses a precious exhibition of furniture, sculptures, paintings, Flemish tapestries, as well as traces of the Council of Trent. Do not miss the guided tour of the adjoining Torre di Piazza, the archaeological sites of Porta Veronensis, the Early Christian Basilica of San Vigilio and Palazzo Libera at Villa Lagarina.

Santuario di San Romedio
Religion, art and legend are brought together in one place, surrounded by the powers of nature. On the rocky outcrop that houses the tomb of San Romedio, over the centuries, three small churches, two chapels and seven shrines of the Passion, connected by a flight of 131 steps, have all nestled.

 

Eremo di San Colombano
Perched on a rock above a sheer drop of 120 metres, the monastery can be reached by a short walk accompanied by the sound of the lively water of the river Leno. According to legend, children baptized in the river died because of a dragon until Saint Colomban killed it.
