Located to the north of the town on the left side is an imposing church in Baroque style, built between 1693 and 1702. It has undergone recent restorations which brought it to its full splendour. It was designed by Sebastiano Taricco, who created an elegant building that plays with the shapes and dynamics of a baroque that seems almost rococo. The stuccos are by Domenico Beltramelli, Giancarlo Aliberi created the frescoes of the Augustinian saints, the Glory of Saint Augustine and the Assumption. I would also like to point out the beautiful botanical garden on the right side of the church where you can take a pleasant break and on the left side the elegant private garden.
The sanctuary of the Madonna del Popolo stands at the top of the hill and overlooks the surrounding mountains. The sanctuary is characterized by a complex polygonal plan. Inside, the use of light tones stands out, especially white and pink.
Architectural typology Baroque terracotta facade, with two orders of columns, interspersed with niches and various ornaments. Interior with a single octagonal nave that supports the dome. Object of worship Wooden and gilded statue of Our Lady of the Rosary dated to the 17th century and transported to the sanctuary in 1818.
seen only eternally because closed majestic and dominant, pity with little square on the front.
Beautiful Baroque church with a magnificent dome, the third largest in Piedmont.
