Chiesa di San Lucio: The church which dates back to the nineteenth century is dedicated to St. Lucius, shepherd and cheese maker of the valley of Cavargna. It is situated at the border to  Italy and has always been a center of culture for people from both countries. It is decorated with frescos that were not discovered until recent restorations. On July 12 and August 16 the celebration of San Lucio (or San Uguzo) takes place, the patron of the mountaineers who had been killed. Every year up to 3000 people participate in the celebration.
