Bellissimi

The village of Bellissimi (Belisci in Ligurian) belongs to the municipality of Dolcedo. The country is a gem set among the hills in the heart of the Val Prino and definitely worth a visit especially to coincide with the Feast of St. Mauro to attend the launch of the paper balloons.

Parish Church of St. Thomas the Apostle

Of medieval origins, it acquired its present appearance after reconstruction started in 1717 and completed in 1738 by the architect Giacomo Filippo Marvaldi.

Chapel of Santa Brigida

Chapel of Santa Brigida

Of medieval origin, it was rebuilt in 1425, as stated in the inscription on the portal. The exterior is roughly plastered rough stone. Stone are the two portals, the facade, with slightly pointed arches, with architrave decorated with a cross and supported by two stylized shelves, and the one on the west side, with the symbol carved in the architrave of the Agnus Dei.

The façade is preceded by a porch, used as a refuge for pilgrims. The apse is Romanesque, with two openings at the Louvre and a series of arches that repeats on both sides. Recently, late medieval frescoes were discovered in the conch, which is currently under investigation by the Superintendent to the artistic heritage of Liguria.
