Santa Maria Immacolata Church
Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II 19, Rivolta D'Adda (CR)
The date of construction of the church is not sure, but it is thought to date back to the first half of the 15th century. The layout is the traditional Gothic-Lombar structure. The facade is made in bricks and shingle. Inside of the church there is a singe nave divided in two spans, covered by some barrel vaults and two side chapels. The internal painting decoration dates back to the beginning of the 16th century and on the walls there are some fake marbles discovered after the restoration works of the year 1980.
The peculiarity of the Immacolata Concezione Church is the location: the altar is in the Western point and not in the Eastern one, probably because it was connected to the worship of the deceased. In fact, the back territory was the place where the deceased were buried.
