The San Bartolomeo Apostolo Church in Montegemoli
with its trussed ceiling
The church is located on the very South side of the town of Montegemoli. It’s a 12th century barn-shaped building without an apse, like most of the churches in the Valdicecina. The vaults were added to the trussed ceiling probably in the 18th century. The church used to have a defense role for the south side of the castle, which we can see in the small windows that used to cover the whole right side of the church. Most of them are now plastered shut, apart from the one close to the chancel.
The church is only open during mass times.
