Ancient rural church, near the river Tergola, in the middle of nature.
Near the river Tergola, in the middle of a park called Tergolandia, the ancient church dedicated to Santa Maria in Campanigalli (also known as “Chiesa del Panigale”) dates to the 8th-9th century; it’s known also as “Chiesa degli Alpini” because, in 1980, the Alpini Association of Campodarsego significantly supported its restoration. The building has a simple structure, but its walls narrate the history of this territory: bricks recalling the Roman period with symbols on them and much more to see. On the facade, one interesting detail can be noticed: the ancient technique of placing the bricks in a herringbone pattern. Inside the church, the visitor admires some graffiti dating to the Medieval period, maybe engraved by pilgrims or soldiers passing by; around the church, the path that leads to Tergolandia opens towards the banks of the river Tergola.
