If this page is on the meager side, it's partly because Polino is one of the smallest and remotest corners of Umbria, with very few churches, and partly because I merely walked to the town once a few years ago on a weekday without even gaining access to the interiors of the two churches I saw. A return visit, better organized, might bag us some more information and photographs; stay tuned, but don't hold your breath.
