Discover the baroque art in Vermenagna- Roya

Cross-border area Yes

Means of transport en voiture

In the Roya and Vermenagna valleys there are numerous Baroque churches and chapels of the 17th and 18th centuries, but also neo-baroque decorations of the 19th century, or even some earlier buildings (late Romanesque and Alpine Gothic) which were equipped with altars and baroque altarpieces during the counter-reformation.

The cross-border baroque itinerary proposes more specifically the visit of the assets whose overall design is characteristic of the renewal of religious architecture in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and whose mannerist rococo or more classic decorations, were then reproduced by the artists who circulate between Nice, Genoa and Turin.
