DISTRICTS
CAZZANO DI TRAMIGNA

The district of Cazzano di Tramigna is 23 kilometres apart from Verona, and it includes the community of Campiano, Costeggiola, Monti and Pissolo. In the area, were discovered some inscriptions, which belong to the Roman period. One of these is walled up in the parish church. The San Giorgio Martire Church is the actual parish church and it was built at the end of nineteenth century, on the remains of an preexisting building. Of the old building we have some traces of frescoes (XIV sec.), the altar (XV c.), the octagonal font in red marble (XV century) and a tabernacle in tuff.

The San Felice Sanctuary is situated in a panoramic position. According to tradition, the Church was consecrated, by Pope Lucio III in 1185. The facade still has the typical elements of the Roman period. The interior contains a rich set of frescoes of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, made in part from Maestro Cicogna. The San Pietro in Brian Church was built in the early sixteenth century. The building is located on the slopes of the hill that dominates the village of Cazzano. The small and modest Romanesque Church contains frescoes paintings of particular value, attributed to Maestro Cicogna. In the center of the town there is a resurgence called Fontanone or Mora Lake, in honor of the blackberry, queen of the cherries of Verona. The waters of the resurgence comes from Monte Bastia and from the nearby Illasi valley. At the center of the Mora Lake was placed in 2008 a statue of San Giovanni Nepomuceno.
