Saint Lawrence parish church

Pré-Saint-Didier

Built in the XV century and extended in 1891, it is a Latin cross church, with only one nave. The main door dates back to the last great age of restoration and is overlooked by a wooden figure of the village’s patron, Saint Lawrence, created by a skilful local artist, Ottavio Grange. The transept, on the left side, hosts the Madonna delle Vittorie, a statue dating back to the XIX century, while the rest of the building is to the front (XVIII century); instead, the right side hosts St. Joseph’s altar. The nineteenth-century apse, on the main altar, is overlooked by a crucifix which was consecrated to mark the works conducted at the end of the nineteenth century. On the right hand side, the door of the sacristy dating back to the XVII century is made from walnut with prismatic crystal, carved panels. The belltower is one of the oldest in the valley, along with those in Sarre, Chesallet, Issime and St. Benigno’s Priory (Saint-Bénin) in Aosta: the tower connects elements in Romanesque-Lombard style, from the typical mullioned window under the discharging arch, to later elements (XIII century) such as the capital in castle barbican style and a linked discharging arch, purely for decorative purposes.
