Votive Pylon of S. Bovo

Address: Regione San Grato, 14018 Villafranca d'Asti AT, Italia

Located in S. Grato Region was built in the early 1800s.

San Bovo or San Bono was considered the protector of those affected by fever and, at the same time, protector of animals (as seen from the banner that leads on horseback).

It is said that until a few years ago on the occasion of the anniversary of his feast, on May 22, the SS Rosary was celebrated and the people of the village carried a brick that left at the foot of the votive pillar.

These bricks were used to expand and repair the same or the church of S. Grato.
