Saint Thomas' Church

A gothic jewel in a panoramic position

The small Church of St Thomas in Cavedago is located in the old part of the town, at an altitude of 900. it is situated in a panoramic area surrounded by a small cemetery.

It dates back to mid-1300s and is Gothic in design but with late Romanesque influences. The roof has a steep slope and there is a Bell Tower with a Ghibelline spire with 4 Romanesque triple lancet windows. The main façade has a gateway dating from the Renaissance period complete with frescoes dating back to the construction of the Church. Inside the Gothic style triumphs with vaulted ceilings and a polygonal apse, there are also numerous frescoes from the 14th century by lesser known painters.

In the early 20th century the Church was damaged by a fire that destroyed the roof and made the building structurally unsound. In an attempt to restore the Church to its former glory it underwent restoration work between 1999 and 2002. It was during this period that the evocative wooden altarpiece depicting St Thomas' lack of belief (doubting Thomas), by the sculptor Egidio Petri of Segonzano, was created.

It is regularly open to visitors in summer and by appointment only in winter.

An interesting fact

The apse is covered by an umbrella and has inscribed on it the signature of the master builder, Rocco de Redis. You can see it on the top of the back wall.
