Church of S. Pier d'Agrino

Church of S. Pier d'Agrino in Bogliaco
Climbing the hill from Bogliaco towards Fornico, the church of S. Pier d'Agrino (St. Peter of Agrino) makes for a pleasant walking destination. Right from down on the lake, the church catches the eye, with its tall, crenellated bell tower. The façade is completed with a porch, and inside we find the classic nave and two aisles, with eight columns and seven altars. S . Pier d'Agrino has a 16th Century feel to it, and indeed its restoration was completed in 1576. The church still today boasts numerous paintings attributed to various artists, including some by Celesti; it is also home to an organ case dating back to 1672, a 17th-Century embossed and chiselled silver monstrance and a Fifteenth Century wooden statue of the saint, seated and giving blessings. Directly opposite the church of S. Pier d'Agrino stands the Eighteenth-Century church of the Santa Trinità (Holy Trinity), more popularly known as the Santuario del Crocefisso (Sanctuary of the Crucifix).
