A little chapel

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 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?

  1. 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….

      • 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.
