In the district of Campagna, outside the residential area of Maggia, stands the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie. The building was built in the late 15th century on the site of a votive chapel and later expanded. The rectangular church has a small entrance hall, a stone roof and a small bell tower. The smooth west wall is provided with three small windows, while on the east side the profile of the 1600 built-in chapel becomes visible. The modest exterior stands in stark contrast to the rich interior. The frescoes on the walls and in the choir were installed between the 16th and the mid-19th century. There are also numerous votive tablets dedicated to Our Lady. From many pictures of unknown authors the oil painting titled "I benefattori romani" by G. A. Vanoni from Aurigeno stands out.
