Santa Maria Maddalena, Ossuccio

This church has always welcomed pilgrims since the 12th century. The altar is made out of chalk dust (scagliola) which is the process used in the Intelvi Valleys and the original belfry is one of the most photographed in this area.  It was between the 14th and 15th century that its Romanesque bell-tower was topped with a peculiar Gothic bell-cell which has now become of the the landmarks of Lake Como.

Inside the church you can see visible traces of original frescoes.
