Del St. Rochus Chapel


Show all 3 images

The little church was dedicated to St. Roch, the patron saint against plagues.


An old oral tradition states that the cruel plague of 1580 has afflicted almost all the inhabitants of Del. So it was also understandable that the later built church was consecrated to St. Rochus, the patron saint against plague scares. Two Landvögte have made today's facility possible through foundations. Landvogt Scarpatetti appears as the founder of the chapel consecrated on 1 August 1596 by Bishop Peter Raschér with two altars. The new building of the present ship (1638) is the origin of a foundation of Landvogt Capar Frisch. Last renovation in 1994.
