Church of San Michele in Antraccoli
Discover the eighth-century church in Antraccoli,

Of the church of San Michele di Antraccoli, no traces of the early medieval construction are visible today. Considerable parts of the twelfth-century building are, though, and it was around this that a village started to develop.

In that period, the church was smaller than it is today and probably simply consisted of a single nave with a bell tower on the south side. Remains of the original entrance and walls can still be seen.

Only later was the building enlarged to its present-day proportions. Its third construction phase took place between the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries. During this period, the height of the façade and the northern side were both increased; the older windows were also substituted with new, larger ones.

In the eighteenth century a bell tower was built on the north side of the church, since the medieval one had been incorporated into the rectory building, which still stands today, on the opposite side.
