What to see in Apricale, Imperia

  • Via degli Angeli, Apricale (IM)
The Church fortress of the Madonna degli Angeli dates back to the year 1000. Situated along the ancient mule track for Isolabona, near Rio San Rocco, stands on a rocky spur outside the inhabited center apricalese. Of the ancient church does not exist certain news and documented until 1520, the year in which it is mentioned in a testamentary bequest: maybe it was a chapel for the stopover or a chapel "guard" along the downstream path. The building has a single rectangular nave - with the division into three spans closed by the apse - decorated with simple cycles of frescoes painted between the XV and the XVII century.
