Village

Vigano San Martino

Jewels of sacred art and medieval architecture characterise this hilltop village in the Media Val Cavallina.

Vigano San Martino is a small municipality of Media Val Cavallina, located on the orographic right of the Cherio River. Medieval times marked the village considerably: in fact, visible traces of a castle (near the current parish church) and the remains of several fortifications can be found.

The fine Parish Church of San Giovanni Battista, built in the Romanesque style in 1535, had a corner of a castle as its bell tower. Renovated in the 18th century, it adopted its current form, with numerous frescoes and paintings and a valuable altar of the Fantonian school.

Another interesting example of sacred art is the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Fiore and San Martino, also known and appreciated by San Carlo Borromeo during a visit to Val Cavallina in 1575. This small place of worship is still today a true jewel of rural spirituality.

In more recent times, at the beginning of the 20th century, the village of Vigano San Martino was united with the neighbouring municipalities of Borgo di Terzo, Berzo San Fermo, and Grone, taking the name of Borgounito, maintained only until 1948 when the municipalities were split again.
