The oratory of San Massimo is located in the heart of the countryside of the Alta Padovana (northern area of the province of Padua). The first worship place is likely to date back to the pre-Christian era. The Roman building was then possibly replaced between the 7th and 8th cent. by a first permanent Christian worship place. The small museum in Borghetto is particularly important, since it displays the finds discovered on site; indeed all the items come only from the excavation carried out in the early 70’s near the small oratory.
