Chiesa dei SS. Giacomo e Cristoforo

Description

Located in Rossura, in the hamlet of Molare, the church of SS. Giacomo e Cristoforo dates back to 1750, but its origins are older as it is already mentioned in Romanesque times.


Particularly interesting are the carved and gilded wooden altar from 1733 and a polychrome gilded and silvered wooden group in Nordic style depicting the Pieta. The sculpture, with a very intense expression, perhaps dates back to the sixteenth century, was purchased in 1880 in St. Gallen and is located in the chapel on the left.
