Reviewed 8 May 2012

it is surely nice build ecc, but i cannot understand why you want to spend soo much money on a chirch which is hardly ever used. if you are there, go and have a look. botta is ticino's architect who can do whatver he wants.

In a small hamlet in the Maggia Valley at an elevation of 3,000 ft, this tiny church looks like no other. Designed by Mario Botta, it replaces an old church which was destroyed in 1986 by an avalanche.It is made of alternating layers of 2 local stones: marble and Vallemaggia granite. The church has no windows, the interior is only illuminated by natural light through the glass roof. It seats 15 p. Really awesome.
