Chiesa di S. Basilio (Pieve) reviews
Beautiful Romanesque church, really the flagship of the island. Well restored.
We visited (unfortunately only externally) this little parish church some time ago; We arrived at the hamlet of San Basilio in the late afternoon, after having made a stop in the center of Ariano in Polesine. Although we did not have a way to admire the interiors, it was very pleasant and relaxing to enjoy the beautiful glance that this little church can offer to the visitor. A peculiar staircase leads directly from the road to the entrance while, next to the latter, there is a large stone object that I felt a sort of tomb (I would not say an absurdity but the impression was that). The building was built with face bricks that characterize it making it very suggestive. Making us a tour around however, we noticed that the back (in correspondence of the apse) does not look very well seen a certain general neglect of the area (there is also a pseudo-abandoned cottage that gives the idea of being either a half-dump or a place Meeting place for toxic). On the entrance door there was no sign that provided the slightest information about the opening hours (or any religious functions). Little or nothing even in terms of the didactic panels (always useful to know something more about the history of a place). It would be enough to start from these little things to recover and enhance a structure that seemed a bit ' abandoned to itself. YOU CAN AND YOU HAVE TO DO SOMETHING MORE.
