Description
In 1230 the Chapel "de gazzo" was dependant on the parish of San Vincenzo, in the diocese of Parma and, only after the middle of the XIV century did it pas to the diocese of Reggio Emilia. In 1637 the oratory of San Rocco was erected as independent parochial church subject at first to the Parish of Castelnovo ne' Monti, then to Gottano and in 1727 to the common parish of Nigone. The present day church has a quadrangular portal surmounted by a broken frontispiece in relief with marble icon depicting San Rocco, of 17th century style.
