Casalmaggiore - Church of Santa Maria dell'Argine

City CASALMAGGIORE
Country ITA

The church, one of the first Christian churches in the area dedicated originally to Our Lady of Grace, is located in the place where the town was first located, with its distant longobardic origins. The constant flooding of the river forced the inhabitants to abandon the site and the little church, now dedicated to Saint Mary of the Riverbank, is the only testimony that has survived. The building is characterised by the Romanic bell tower and the XVII century façade. The original paintings inside wereremoved and are now kept in the current parish church.
