Chiesa Santo Stefano

Chiesa Santo Stefano title=

Gothic church with a clear Romanesque structure, flanked by a bell-tower with mullioned windows. According to legend, it was built on the site of a castle destroyed by Charlemagne.

In the artistic period of transition from Gothic to Renaissance, many religious buildings in Trentino were decorated by the Baschenis, a family of fresheners from a Bergamo town: Averaria. For more than eightyyears, from 1474 to 1555, the Baschenis embellished the facades of churches and the interior of apses and chapels with their polychrome images, with the aim of instructing and exhorting to a life far from sin. The building, in Gothic style with a clear Romanesque structure, is flanked by the Romanesque mullioned bell tower; the southern part is entirely frescoed with paintings by Simone Baschenis and the central theme is that of Macabre Dance. According to legend, Santo Stefano Church, perched on a granitic rock overlooking the entire valley, was built on the site of a castle destroyed by Charlemagne during his expedition to Val Rendena.
