Chiesa di Santo Stefano

The church of Santo Stefano is located in the Northern zone of the city of Aosta, just outside the walled perimeter of Augusta Praetoria near the ancient Roman road which, exiting from Porta Principalis Sinistra, led to the Alpis Poenina (the current Gran San Bernardo pass).
The current building was built on the walled structures of a previous church from the 15th century. The church was restored extensively in 1728-29, as appears from the agreement stipulated on 25 April 1728 by the parish priest Clérin, who also had the bell tower raised. The frescoes on the facade were, on the other hand, painted by his successor Michel-Joseph Rosaire, the parish priest between 1729 and 1735.
