This little church nearly got bypassed. We were leaving Siviano on Monte Isola, Lake Iseo, in September 2018, after having a wonderful Sunday dinner and a look at the Parish Church. I had just turned a corner, when I saw an old army gun outside of a building. While inspecting the gun, my husband said he thought the building was a church, no way too small, was my answer. Although I thought I would humour him and have a look, yes he was right, a tiny church, more like someones front parlour, the Church of St Barbara.
It was a little difficult to take photos, as the space was very limiting, but again bright and light. I have found very little about the church, only that it it is normally closed……really lucky it was open, and that it’s 18th century, so built sometime in the 1700’s, and the inside of the small church, is a single stucco nave with a vaulted roof, although small, it has its own frescos. I only took a few photos, as we still had the other half of the island to go, but I did remember to take one of the beautiful ceiling.
