Chiesa dell’Oasi Verde

Since its closure well over 50 years ago a lot has changed to the interior and exterior of this 19th-century neo-Gothic church. It really was an architectural jewel of its time. The architect was inspired by the Scrovegni Chapel and the walls were decorated with frescoes made by well-known artists. Later on in history, the church bell tower was built separately from the church itself.

Over time, the roof collapsed and degradation took over the entire complex. Nowadays the interior is almost completely covered with vegetation. At floor level literally everything is covered. A remarkable sight entering the church.
