about

The name, formerly Sarmér, seems to be of Celtic derivation. The village overlooks the gorge of the San Michele stream and consists of three districts: Terra, Brea and Frenzano. The valleys of Sermerio have always been planted with vines since ancient times and extend over an area characterized by countless natural terraces facing south. At the end of the last century, this crop was partly abandoned, re-discovered a few years ago and now has an excellent production of wine.

Several are the trails to cover in the surrounding countryside. The dirt road towards Tremalzo starts nearby, this is the most popular route for mountain bikes or ebikes lovers, well known for the Tremalzo bike – a challenging competition of 45 km which runs every autumn.

The church of Sermerio is dedicated to two saints, San Bernardo Abate – 20th of August – and San Martino Vescovo – 11th of November.

The first news of its construction, dating back to 1566, can be found in some documents of the time. The plan of the structure is rectangular and the interior has a single nave. On the main altar is a nineteenth-century painting portraits the Madonna with the patron saints of Sermerio. The valuable organ was built in 1854 by the craftsman Martino Brunori.

In via della Libertà, there is a votive shrine which contains the statue of the Madonna with her child. At the bottom it is written “Anno Mariano 1954”.

At the junction between via Terra and via della Libertà there is an acient fountain used as a wash house and for watering animals.
