St Marguetire Church in Carcheto Brustico

The baroque church was built by local craftsmen from Castagniccia to xviie et xviiie centuries. It is flanked by a huge openwork bell tower and its facade presents a harmonious composition with its warm colored stones. The baroque interior is touchingly simple, but the paintings are quite deteriorated. Its location makes it one of the most picturesque churches in the region. The building is classified as historical monuments in 1976.z

 

 

 

 

 

Church of St Perre and Paul de Piedicroce

The building contains many works, from xviecentury to nineteenthe century, owned by the municipality and all listed as Historical Monuments. Tables, hotels, a tribune organ, a Stations of the Cross, various virgins etc ...

The church was completed by a bell tower adjoining the left side of the main facade. This western facade has a triangular pediment with two volutes flanking the upper level, and a niche entirely decorated with painted motifs: a shell occupies the entire vault of the cul-de-four.

A recent restoration of the facade has brought to light a polychromy which, applied to the turbulent elements of the decoration, helps to assert the baroque character of the whole..

The interior consists of a single nave and seven side chapels, richly decorated in Rococo style. The ceiling is decorated with frescoes depicting the Resurrection of Christ. The walls also feature rich ornamentation.
