The chapel of Saint Giorgio is located in Cigliè, in a small village in the Cuneo Langhe, and dominates, due to its position,
on the highest hill of the village, all the surrounding landscape.
From the church square, on fine days, the view can range from the Maritime Alps to the Monte Rosa group, landscapes that stretch
from the Cuneo plain to the Turin plain.
This country chapel is dedicated to Saint Giorgio and contains some frescoes inside, on the altar wall, including one depicting
the Saint who pierces the dragon, saving the princess (according to the Golden Legend of Jacopo da Varagine).
We do not know with certainty the author of this fresco; could it be Antonio da Monteregale as Raineri hypothesizes ?
According to other experts, it is more likely to be attributed to the "Maestro of Saint Giorgio" who worked at the time,
according to several testimonies of this artist in that area. Certainly the other frescoes cannot be attributed to Antonio from Monteregale.
In any case it is worth a visit, for the extraordinary beauty of the painting and the extraordinary beauty of the place.
