Tempio di Ormelle
Tempio di Ormelle (the Church of the Templars) was probably built in the 12th century by the monastic millitary Order of the KnightsTemplars, with later extensions between the 14th and 18th centuries, when the St. John's Order (commonly known as The Order of Malta), took over from the Knights Templars.
In ancient times the church was conceived as a stopping place for pilgrims travelling to the Holy Land. The building is of the essential simple lines of Romanesque architecture.
The Knights Templars settled in this place through which passed one of the ancient Roman roads, Via Opitergium-Tridentum, in close proximity to Via Postumia that linked Genoa to Aquileia.
