On the road into Ponte a Serraglio (SS Brennero) there is a little chapel…just in front of the parked silver car on the left.
I have driven and walked past it for years and have never noticed it until recently.
It is is reasonable condition.
It looks quite pretty from the front.
There is a semicircular seat in the front, a nice place to rest before visiting the chapel.
The interior is well kept.
Beside it is a ruin…a wall and a set of steps. I wonder what that was.
Does anyone know anything about the chapel?
How intriguing. It looks as though it’s from a fairy tale.
It is a very cute little chapel.
Where is the little chapel Debra? Which side of the river? It is in very good condition.
It is on the left as you leave Ponte a Serraglio. I can’t believe I have walked and driven past it for years without noticing it.
…a little hidden gem.
I have not seen it, either. It does not look very old, it is dedicated to the Virgin Mary and it is consecrated and in use, see the votive candles. I will try to find out….
It is well kept, so it looks as though it is in use.
Cristina, my lovely neighbor, informs me that the little chapel was dedicated to Our Lady of Mount Carmel by a local family, the Morgantis. She is trying to find more details in the Ponte a Serraglio Parish Archives and will let me now.
hAVE YOU LEARNED ANYTHING ELSE ABOUT CHAPEL, i’M A mORGANTI AND FAMILY IS FROM THE AREA
No, I don’t know any more about the chapel, unfortunately.
I love this!
A beautifully peaceful looking place. I love the semi-circle seat. Small churches are always my favourites.
I am still discovering things in the village after 12 years. This is not far from my apartment.
Beautiful. I Hope European countries will preserve our religious and cultural heritage.
Italy does quite a good job with this.
I always thought it belonged to the house next to it, so I’ve never walked around. It’s very pretty.
