Vervò has got 700 inhabitants and is an important place from an archeologic point of view, as in this area 17 Roman epigraphs were found.
The historic centre is mainly characterised by the typical Val di Non construction style, influenced by alpine elements. From the main place some little roads brach off, flanked by buildings with massive masonry, often decorated with frescos picturing emblems, saints or decorative elements. Worth seeing is e.g. the relief at the mansion Casa Gottardi and the frescoes in the Santa Maria church, as well as its golden altar.
Of course you should also visit the San Martino church which is enthroned on a rock spur in direction Pongaiola gorge. In order to reach this church, follow the via crucis. The church itself, which has been constructed on the prehistoric fortress, is indeed old, but has repeatedly been rebuilt and changed, for the last time in the 17th century. Next to this church, there is the SS. Fabiano and Sebastiano chapel.
In the tiny little village of Priò there is the San Michele parish church, from where you can enjoy a great view on Vervò.
