Rimasco – Alto Sermenza

Incorporated in 2018 into the High Sermenza municipality formed from the union with Rima San Giuseppe, Rimasco is a picturesque alpine village overlooking an artificial lake.


Was founded in 1479 when it broke away from the parish of Boccioleto. This small village lies on the shores of an artificial lake created following the construction of a dam downstream of the village in 1925 in order to increase electricity production.

The parish church of St. James has ancient origins but was remodelled several times until 1688, when it acquired its present appearance. Many Baroque wooden works and frescoes are preserved inside.

In winter, the peaks that embrace the village lend themselves to snowshoeing and ski mountaineering excursions.
