Church Dedicated To The Annunciation Of The Virgin Mary

Built with three naves starting from 1416 on a pre-existing oratory, the church owes its current appearance to the renovations carried out in the early 19th century. The latter were responsible for the elevation of the central nave and the design of the façade, by the Cremonese architect L.B. Bianzani. The eight side chapels house paintings by the Cremonese and Mantuan schools from the 15th-18th centuries, a gilded wooden altarpiece dedicated to the Our Lady of the Rosary and a fragment of a Lombard tombstone dating back to the 8th century. The chapel of Saint John the Evangelist houses, set under the altar table, the body of Blessed Sisto Locatelli, a Franciscan friar who was declared co-patron of Rivarolo’s community. The left choir of the presbytery includes a Lingiardi organ dating from 1882. Outside we can admire the bell tower which in the lower part preserves some terracotta decorations from the second half of the 15th century.
