what to see

In Passo Nota it is possible to visit the cemetery and the trenches of the First World War.

The church of Vesio dates back to the second half of the 1700s, built on a previous chapel of which no trace remains, by the Como-born Bianchi and Cometti helped, for the marble works, by the Veronese Francesco Zuliani, perhaps from Torri del Benaco.

The most beautiful altarpieces are those of the main altar, portraying the Madonna with the angels together with San Bartolomeo and San Rocco, and of the second altar on the left with the Immaculate Conception by Giandomenico Cignaroli from Verona who painted it in 1761. The ceiling is covered with fine decorations. Excellent pipe organ by the Venetian Gaetano Callido, restored a few years ago.

The week after Easter, during the Holy Forty Hours, a painted wood scenography is mounted on the main altar and set up with candles. A unique scenario that attracts religious and curious.

In via Simosegna you can see a fresco reproducing the Madonna with Child and Saints; in via Bettino, which connects the parish church with the provincial road, there is a capital dedicated to the Crucifixion and in via Giacomo Zanini another dedicated to the Sacred Heart.
