Calispera Church

Contesse hamlet
Destroyed in the century. XV by a flood of the nearby S. Filippo stream, it was rebuilt and elevated to a parish church. The 1908 earthquake severely damaged it and caused its abandonment. In the thirties of the last century the church was rebuilt on the pre-existing structures but only in its front part of which the original façade was recovered with the artistic portal with columns, entablature and tympanum and the ancient cantonals in stone.
