The small church dedicated to the Madonna della Neve rises not far from the lake. Tall cypress trees and a stream flank it on one side, behind it has the municipal cemetery, the façade faces east, towards the Garda. Built in Romanesque style, it probably dates back to the second half of the 16th century. This is the most "young" Romanesque church among all those in Valtenesi. The façade has a gabled façade and is preceded by a square plan pronaos. Originally, probably, there were frescoes, but they were lost in the nineteenth century, when the church was used as a hospital for a cholera epidemic and then, by disinfection, it was painted with lime. Today the church is usually closed to worship, but, especially in summer, it is used as a church in the cemetery.
