Nice Chiesa !

If you are walking in downtown Lugano do not miss this church. Take a time to see the beautiful paintings and the construction itself.

We were strolling around Lugano and walked into this beautiful church. The frescos were very impressive and well worth seeing.

Not a grand impression, but the fresco is definitely worth visiting. A very classic renaissance scenery with period clothing and people, which is great for discussing with your children how this painting would be painted today. A fine quality work, too! The rest of the church is unimpressive!

Yes, well, the fresco tells it all. What a lovely building, surrounded as it is by modern architecture, it still keeps its charm. We were lucky to attend part of an organ recital and the instrument was not only a good one, but very well played. Despite its charms, it is a bit underplayed and could do with more publicity.

Don´t hesitate to walk to this church and enjoy its beautiful frescos painted by a disciple of Leonardo, and, if you have the chance to be there on a Monday, make sure you join the "Unexpected Classic Tour" of the city center. Great experience!

Worth a look into this church to see the vibrant 16th century frescoes of biblical scenes. Lovely walk to reach church.
