Chiesa di Sant’Antonio, Locarno

Overlooking a peaceful piazza

Chiesa di Sant’Antonio was originally built in the 14th century, but the current structure dates back only to the 19th century, when it was rebuilt after a fatal roof collapse that killed 47 congregants.

Soaring interior

Inside, there’s a single nave with several side chapels featuring works by local painters. Corinthian pillars support the ceiling.

This church is best known for its altar to the Cristo Morto, or dead Christ.
