St. Brigid Church

Town: Roncegno Terme

The Church of Santa Brigida dates back to the sixteenth century with the pastoral visits of the bishops of Feltre. In the visit of Bishop Giacomo Rovellio on August 4, 1590, his secretary notes "... It is 9 manholes long and 7 wide".

The floor is made of stone and the altar is three steps elevated; the bell tower il located towards the mountain, the porch and a cemetery. This church of S. Brigida in the middle of the '600 was knows as a place of a hermitage.

The church was repeatedly restored and consecrated, the Great War destroyed everything and in 1922 the church was again restored and decorated. In 1941 it was again decorated by Don Tarter with a scene of the Annunciation on the triumphal arch, angels and saints and on the external faacade with a large graffiti depicting St. Christopher. The Saints depicted are St. Agnes, St. Anne, St. Nicholas and St. Anthony Abbot.

The church, with a single nave, has two chapels immediately below the presbytery dedicated one to the Madonna, as a vow for having been preserved from cholera in 1855, and the other to St. Anthony of Padua with statues carved in Val Gardena. Behind the main altar there is an altarpiece depicting St. Bridget and the Madonna, by Bazzotto.

In 2001 the parish priest Don Minati accidentally discovered a fresco; the intervention of the Province, with the restorations carried out by Enrica Vinante, brings to light a Last Supper that experts date back to the fourteenth century
