Abbazia di Sant’Alberto da Butrio, near Ponte Nizza, was founded by hermit saint Alberto of Butrio in the 11th century on the summit of a limestone outcrop and soon became a Benedictine closed order. A painting inside shows the miracle performed by the saint in the presence of the Pope and three cardinals with which he proved that he had not committed the sin of breaking his fast as accused. In the surrounding area, the historic Pieve church of San Ponzo has a surviving attractive medieval plan with a beautiful church. It is for this reason that Ponte Nizza is a religious tourism destination.
