Parish church of San Grato

Resorts: Pontboset


The original church was built between 1622 and 1624, therefore shortly before the foundation of the parish (1625), but it was then rebuilt in 1843-44, working on the plans and under the management of the architect Pacifique Dallou of Donnas. In 1910, the internal walls were frescoed by the painters Stornone, Sardi and Carretti.
The altar dates back to the nineteenth century, but contains statues from 1706, by Serra, a maestro from Biella. The triumphal crucifix is said to date back to 1625. In the square in front of the church there is a beautiful stone fountain, built in 1830 by the stone cutter Peraldo of Biella.
