what to see

In the ancient and small center you can see the characteristic vaulted arch. The stone houses of the villages of Tremosine are typical of peasant construction, leaning against each other. This creates hallways called “vaulted arch”, a network of internal courtyards and covered passages.

In the hamlet there are two shrines, an older one dedicated to San Rocco and one dated 1849 dedicated to the Madonna of the Rosary with the Child Jesus together with San Domenico, San Giuseppe, Santa Caterina, San Michele and San Gabriele Arcangeli. Saint Rocco is honored with solemnity by the whole hamlet on August 16th, the feast of the saint pilgrim who died of plague in 1300s, protector of the sick. In front of the Madonna, people gather during the month of May for the recitation of the Marian prayer.
