San Bartolomeo Church (Margno)

This church was one of the chaplains detached from Primaluna after the year one thousand.

Today it has a large nave structure. An impressive cycle of frescoes dating back to the sixteenth century is located near the presbytery. The chapel of San Pietro Martire, to the right of the presbytery, preserves in place of a lost altarpiece with the titular saint, an interesting sixteenth-century polyptych, probably coming from the main altar. On the other hand, the chapel on the left has a baroque altar with a statue of the Madonna. At the center of the right wall is the most significant chapel: the one dedicated to San Carlo.
Also in the seventeenth century, a copy of a missing martyrdom of San Bartolomeo del Ribera is to be noted in the first chapel on the left, known through an engraving and other ancient copies, two of which are in Valtellina, testifying to the cultural emigration Naples.
In the sacristy we can admire an eighteenth-century painting with the Coronation of the Virgin among the Saints of Paradise. On the back of the church there is a small chapel dedicated to Santa Maria di Loreto, which originally was in the cemetery that surrounded the parish on three sides.
