The Chapel of San Rocco

The Chapel of San Rocco is a Catholic place of worship located in the hamlet of Orco Feglino, in the province of Savona. The chapel was probably built in the 17th century along a road leading to the town gates, to protect the town from the plague epidemics, which were very widespread at the time.It looks like a small building apparently consisting of two different construction phases. The first, currently the rear part in which the presbytery is located, is a small octagonal chapel; the second is the front part, consisting of a single room connected to the previous one.The gabled façade has no decoration or friezes. The central door is flanked by two windows and surmounted by an oculus. On the roof stands a small bell tower with a single bell.
