St. Nicholas Church in Caldaro

The St. Nicholas Church in Caldaro, unmistakable by its two towers, has been a Marian pilgrimage site since the 18th century.

Like each of the eight districts of Caldaro, also San Nicolò (St. Nikolaus) has its own church. It dates back to the 13th century, still recognisable by the lower part of the tower and the western wall. The present church was built in 1521 by master builders from Como and replaced the once Romanesque building. The church tower with the white roof still dates from this time, but through the centuries it became dilapidated. The second tower was built in 1880, was covered with striking green shingles and took over the function of a bell tower.

Also the interior of the St. Nicholas Church is worth seeing: There are vault frescoes by Bartlmä Dill Riemenschneider and the miraculous image of the Virgin Mary, a work by the Italian Baroque painter Sassoferrato. It is said that it started crying in 1733 in a house next door, which made San Nicolò a Marian pilgrimage site. That's still being celebrated today: Every five years at Pentecost, this picture is carried in a procession through the village...
