A gem at the highest point of this medieval town, Santa Maria has everything to offer. An elegant building of proportions suitable for this small town community, it has great appeal historically both inside and out. There are numerous frescoes on the walls and some original and beautiful wooden statues as well as paintings. As you enter the Church there is a major restoration that has been done in the last fifteen years and shows the Nativity scene with Saints on either side. From the piazza outside there are amazing views in different directions. From there it is great to see the ski slope lit up for the feast of La befana. In the summer the square is the starting point of the Medieval pageant " the Palio"! An ideal place for a family wedding and I am so glad our daughter chose Santa Maria in Alta for hers.
