The Church of San Michele Arcangelo

The Church of San Michele Arcangelo

Situated in Vito d’Asio, on a terrace overlooking the Arzino Valley, the parish church of San Michele Arcangelo was first mentioned in the fifteenth century. Modified several times, the current structure has an imposing stone façade, built at the behest of the parish priest, artist Gabriele Cecco, to the design of architect Domenico Rupolo in the 20th century. Damaged by the 1976 earthquake, the church was restored and reopened to the public in 1989.

The churches of Vito d’Asio and Clauzetto were long united under the single Pieve d’Asio. Continuing along the mule track that starts not far from the Church of San Michele, you will reach the Parish Church of San Martino d’Asio.

In the surroundings of the parish church, you can walk along the famous clapadòrie, ancient stone-paved roads, real works of art that cross hamlets and courtyards.

The old Valcellina road

Until 1906, the Valcellina, with the municipalities of Andreis, Barcis, Claut, Cimolais and Erto, which in the 19th century had a total of ten thousand inhabitants, remained isolated due to the absence of roads.
