The parish church of San Bartolomeo, presumably on the site of an earlier building from the 12th-13th centuries. Built in the 17th century, it was enlarged and rebuilt several times in the 17th century. The interior of the church shows the most important picture cycle from the 19th century in the entire Maggia valley. Most of the frescoes are the work of the Aurigeno-born painter G.A. Vanoni. They represent St. Bartholomew, the four evangelists and the four doctors of the church, crowned in baroque style with gilded tendrils. G.A. We owe the tabernacle door on the left altar and the painting of the Rosary Madonna on the right altar to Vanoni.
