Church of San Nicolao in Giornico

This place was an amazing find on the way down to Locarno after traversing the Gotthard Pass. There were thunderstorms and fog so the atmosphere was thick!

 

San Nicolao, an important example of Roman church architecture, was completed in 1210 !!

I took a time exposure of 30 seconds as it was very dark inside and treacherous to walk around.
