The Rural Church of the Abbey of S. Gallo (Pieve Abbaziale) at Moggio, creating a monumental monastery complex together with the adjoining Benedictine cloister, was restructured after the 1976 earthquake which had almost destroyed it (but it had been severely damaged also by the earthquakes of 1348 and 1511).
The abbey was founded in 1084-1086 following a donation and consecrated in 1119 (depending on the Abbey of S. Gallo in Switzerland). Today the church shows a large Baroque high altar, historic frescoes by Leonardo Rigo (1893) and a fresco by C.B. Tiozzo (ca. 1985) on the nave ceiling. Moreover, the same church also boasts an unusual chandelier made of carved wood and wrought iron, more than three and a half metres high, dating from the 18th century, as well as a sumptuous painted walnut Crucifix recently found and dated 1466. The church of Trasfigurazione is also worth a visit, where Nicola Grassi painted in 1735 a cycle of thirteen panels with the Apostles and the Saviour.
