Santa Maria Parish Church in Spaltenna

This, like its “sisters” San Giusto in Salcio, San Polo in Rosso, San Marcellino and San Vincenti, is a rural settlement from the time of the Romans.

Each church is constructed from the same blueprint that contains a nave and two side aisles separated by pillars with a quadrangular section, concluded by a semicircular apse. Its wall facing in narrow rows of ash-coloured albarese stone, is particularly charming and unique, and it characterizes the high bell tower at the side of the façade. The two towers at the corners are placed at the foot of the big structure and some embrasures testify to the nature of the building.

An important excursion to fully understand the history of the castle you are staying at.
