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


An old oral tradition says that the cruel plague of 1580 killed almost all the inhabitants of Del. So it was understandable that the church built later was dedicated to St. Roch, the patron saint against plague epidemics. Two bailiffs made the current facility possible through foundations. Landvogt Scarpatetti is the founder of the chapel consecrated on 1 August 1596 by Bishop Peter Raschér with two altars. The new construction of today's ship (1638) goes back to a foundation of Landvogt Capar Frisch. Last renovation in 1994.
