  • Parish of St. Mary Assunta of Castagnara, a jewel of the Overseas Pavese The church dates back to the 13th century and rises outside the town in Castagnara Fu founded by Meteliano, I was told the story The Son of Meteliano became seriously ill, but very devoted Meteliano came out at sunset from his son's room descending towards the chestnut forest to pray. As he prayed he heard a voice coming from the trees telling him that his son was safe and that he should build a Church, it is also said that the Virgin appeared twice to Meteliano who came home and found her son healed cheerful and smiling and in the woods of chestnuts was built the Church the interior frescoes of the Church are the work of the painter Rodolfo Gambini originally from Alexandria. Near the Church of Castagnara is the Oratory of the B.V. Sorrows built in the 17th century. The parish church had become too small for the large number of faithful. In 1824 it was used as a cemetery in fact in the basement of the building there are rooms where the deceased were laid. Really a highlight that is worth visiting
