Church of San Giacomo

Zib.1

The parish church of San Giacomo, in the main piazza by the Town Hall, is the main artistic and architectural feature in the town. The church has a central nave and two side aisles and a large octagonal tyburium. It dates back to the 12th century and was restructured in the 15th century. It contains works by the Carthusian schools and two figures of the saints, discovered in 1974 and attributed to the pupils of Bernardino Luini. In front of the church there is a stone sarcophagus which bears witness to the existence of an earlier community. Local legend says that it contains the remains of San Giacomo which Sant’Eustorgio was taking from Constantinople to Milan in the year 512.
