  • Beautiful little church dedicated to San Gottardo. Very well maintained and preserved. A short distance from the castle of the village of Camino Monferrato from its churchyard you can enjoy a wonderful view of the valley below. A trip together with the surrounding places is recommended.
  • Hidden jewel of Camino, the Church of San Gottardo already existed in the 12th century. However, its current appearance, with pinnacles, buttresses on the facade and pointed cross vaults clearly speaks the Gothic language. It was in all probability the Scarampi, feudal lords of the place, who restored the church during the 15th century. Not only that: the dedication to San Gottardo is their work, as well as the pictorial decoration of the interior is due to them. The oldest frescoes, from the fifteenth century, are found in the very small apse: among these the best preserved is a Santa Radegonda from 1478, attributed to a Novara painter. In the single room there are instead some sixteenth-century paintings, most of the Spanzottian school: the wonderful one depicting the Madonna and Child between San Sebastiano and San Lorenzo, datable to the first twenty years of the sixteenth century, embellished with delightful musician angels.
