Chiesa di San Bartolomeo di Villapiana

In the "plain of the County of Cesana" stands the church of San Bartolomeo, one of the many churches that embellish the Valbelluna.

The late medieval setting, with a single nave, is documented for the first time in 1515 but is certainly older.

On its walls there are two distinct pictorial phases, one of the fifteenth and the other of the middle of 1500.

The Last Supper is one of the best preserved in the area with the peculiarity of the presence of red shrimps on the table , the sixteenth-century decoration of pear by Marco da Mel (1505 circa- 1583) as it bears the cartouche placed above the entrance door in the west wall. The Last Supper of 1540 was painted over the previous fifteenth century, detached in 1970 and now preserved in panels in the new Oratory of Lentiai.

Perfectly preserved on the right wall the "conversion of Polimnio" and some traces of other scenes on the west wall, divided by decorated pilasters. In the center of the presbytery, a seventeenth-century wooden altar decorated with the altarpiece depicting the "Virgin with child among the Saints" and a leather paliotto painted with St. Bartholomew. On the sides, two coats of arms, one of Bishop Agazzi and the other of the Vergerio family, which can be traced back to the history of the County of Cesana.

The church is open and can be visited on special occasions such as the event "Fragments of Art in Valbelluna" and for celebrations.
