Art Treasures in Ponte nelle Alpi

Art Treasures In Ponte Nelle Alpi

Begin your journey to see the churches of Ponte nelle Alpi at the archpriest parish church of Santa Maria del Rosario in Cadola. Totally renovated from 1863 by Segusini, the building contains valuable works of art, including a high altarpiece painted by Cesare Vecellio in 1581 and a statue with Our Lady of the Rosary holding Baby Jesus sculpted by Valentino Panciera Besarel of Val di Zoldo. 

Your next stop is the Church of Santa Caterina in Ponte nelle Alpi. Inside this ancient building, probably dating back to the early fourteenth century, repaired and renovated several times, there is a fourteenth-century fresco cycle with Christological scenes and images of some saints. 
Next, head to the twentieth-century parish church of Santa Maria Nascente in Polpet, where there are numerous historical and artistic artefacts from the suppressed churches of the parish. 

Looking in its crypt is almost like entering a small museum of sacred art. Among the most interesting works are a polychrome statue of St Andrew, among the oldest examples of wooden sculpture in the province, a 17th-century altar curtain by Jacopo Costantini, and an altarpiece with the Holy Family by Agostino Ridolfi.

To finish your trip, reach the church of Sant’Andrea in Monte in Polpet, with a 45-minute walk. Before taking the path up the slopes of Mount Frusseda to the small mountain temple, however, stop at the church of the Madonna di Vedoja. Here, the beautiful wooden altar and the two canvases with biblical scenes from the Old Testament painted by Agostino Ridolfi will captivate you.

When you get to Sant’Andrea in Monte, enjoy the beautiful view of the Valbelluna valley and the fresco fragments that still grace the walls of this small mountain church.
