  • Reopened to the public since 2013 after an initial restoration and freed from the fence that partially hid it, it is now clearly visible. This is one of the oldest churches in Borgomanero dedicated to the cult of Santa Caterina D'Alessandria. It would need further internal and external restorations. Only a guided tour is possible.
  • Despite living in this area it is the first time I saw it open and therefore with the Morosa we took advantage of a guided tour. The Lady who accompanied us on this visit was very happy to be able to show this little gem of the ancient "Borgus Mayneirus" which appeared on the side of the river craves outside the town. This church was the last place that the condemned to death saw and asked for redemption and assistance to Saint Catherine of Alexandria, a Christian martyr of the third century after Christ; in addition to the condemned, the merchants who left the village for the markets of Gozzano and Omegna offered their prayers and asked the Saint for protection as it seems that there were many brigands in the area. The walls are adorned with eleven paintings on canvas of the XIIV century, unfortunately in a very degraded state of conservation, dirty and with the painting in the process of detaching, we hope they will be restored and recovered. Fortunately, this church is still in use and once a year a mass is celebrated there, allowing this little corner of our history to be kept alive.
