In devotion, as in everyday life, churches and chapels have represented fundamental hubs of civil and religious life in past centuries. These elements also have indelible traces on the territory in Borgo San Dalmazzo, traces that regardless of the intrinsic characteristics of the properties, tell important chapters of local history. Some of them stand in the old town centre, others represent the focal point of the villages that have developed around Borgo San Dalmazzo over the centuries.
Among these, the most interesting are certainly the former church of Sant’Anna, the chapel of San Rocco and the chapel of San Magno. Located on the edge of the old town centre, the church of Sant’Anna is dedicated to the patron of Borgo San Dalmazzo and rises a few metres from where the Nizza gate of the ancient medieval fortification opened, in the place where ancient medieval documents place an older chapel called Santa Maria del Bedale. The chapel of San Rocco instead rises in front of the only gate of the surviving fortification and since the XVI century, it has protected the town of Borgo San Dalmazzo from the threat of the plague. Located in the old town centre, the church of the Confraternita di San Magno rises above the new canal, a position that characterizes the raised structure over the street level.
