Tourist Attraction in Romano di Lombardia: Basilica di San Defendente
Built at the beginning of the 16th century, it has a single-nave structure with a barrel-like roof, and a very abnormal appearance. This is due to the fact that the church is virtually inserted between the parish church, which is accessed through the sacristy, and the church of Santa Maria di Lourdes, communicating through the former church of San Luigi (also called the church of the male congregations) so that only the eastern facade (where the chorus is located) and the western one are visible externally. Inside are the paintings of Enea Salmeggia (the Holy Trinity), Andrea Pozzo (The dispute of Jesus), Pietro Ricchi (San Defendente and Sant'Alessandro) and Pietro Mango (Martyrdom of San Defendente). Stucco and decorations by Filippo Comerio are also of great impact.
