The Church of the Holy Crucifix was built in 1368 and boasts a remarkable quantity and quality of frescoes.
Its name is in honour of the crucifix that the people of Bormio used to carry along the streets of the village on the first Monday in June each year (a cult that dates back to the 14th century). The small sanctuary is characterised by the remarkable quality of its frescoes, even though the architectural layout has been altered several times over the centuries. Among the oldest representations are the Flagellation of Christ (dated 1368), the Coronation of Thorns and the Crucifixion.
Today, the Church of St. Anthony Abbot is best known for the blessing of the animals that takes place in the churchyard on 17 January each year on the feast of St. Anthony Abbot.
