Church of St. Lawrence (Varignana)


The church dates back to the 8th century.

It was built in a Pre-Romanesque style but underwent several changes throughout the centuries, especially during the Baroque period.

The present was restored to bring back its original Romanesque appearance and to cancel the damages caused by the Second World War.
