Wonderful exterior, beautiful setting Aug 17, 2010
If the exterior of this small chapel could be combined with the interior frescoes of the neighbouring Oratorio di San Pellegrino (see review) it might well be rated as the finest small Cristian church anywhere. As it is you have to look at two foundations only yards apart - what a hardship!?!

I don't mean to knock the inside of this one - there are some most interesting artefacts - but it does not compare with the astonishing artwork of San Pellegrino.

On the other hand the exterior of the Oratory is quite crude, whereas that of Santa Maria Assunta, with three outstanding apses at the rear is typical of the best small church architecture of its period.

The same guide will take you around both churches. A notice near the bus stop tells you the normal holder of the key. However, if this holder should not be there, Bominaco is small enough for anybody to be able to tell you where to find a keyholder/guide.
