Church of San Bartolomeo Apostolo in Montegemoli

with trussed ceiling

The church of San Bartolomeo Apostolo, at the southern end of the town of Montegemoli, is a barn-like building, without an apse (12th century), typical of many churches in the Valdicecina. The trussed ceiling was turned around perhaps in the 18th century. Interesting is the small window on the right side of the presbytery, similar to others, currently still covered by plaster, which opened up throughout the use of the right wall and which document the ancient use of the church as an integrated bastion of the defensive system of the extreme tip southern of the castle.
It is open only for religious services.
