I had read so much about this before visiting as well as seeing it on TV during the Tour of Lombardy and various Giri. Every keen cyclist should visit as it has an amazing collection of cycling memorabilia. Great for cyclists.

Tiny church sitting on top of a hill, crammed full of the most curious cycling memorabilia. Maillots from all the sport's greatest riders and even has several bikes hanging on the walls. Make a donation and collect some unique postcards.
