The ancient center of the city
Jan 2021 • Solo
In this beautiful churchyard you can see the Church of Saints Gervaso and Protasio, the Baptistery of Saint John, the Portico of the Way of the Cross and the Granum Museum.
A jump into the passed years .

Old Church & square
Aug 2020
Well, it's a nice, well restored little place & it's only a short walk from the Lakeside so worth a look at.
The tourist office is here too.
The colours of the walls are beautiful.
It's also on the way to the train station & the Spar shop.

Sit under the arch ways facing the bell tower at 11.55 and wait for the church bells to ring noon or see it lit up at night time.

Charming square and church
Jun 2019 • Couples
With the list of things to do in Baveno being quite short, we were positively surprised about the whole atmosphere of Piazza del Chiesa. Perhaps because we were there at a time when there were not so many tourists (Friday mid-afternoon), it was almost empty, giving us the freedom and space to peacefully explore. Now don't imagine anything big, it really is a small square, but somehow it has a certain peace to it.
With the church and area presumably built some decades ago (!note: we didn't read any information about it, just based on its motifs, style and condition), it was just a pleasure to lazily walk around.

Pleasant piazza with church
May 2019 • Couples
We visited the Piazza on our first day in Baveno and wanted to do a little exploring but were quite tired from the flight from the states. The piazza is just up the hill from the main square of the village. We only saw the exterior of the church and cannot comment on the interior (I believe it was closed when we visited as was the tourist center). The piazza was beautify built and decorated by art (frescoes) on the exterior walls. If in town, it should be visited.

Great to Visit in Early Morning
Apr 2019 • Couples
In the morning when the sun was shining, we came here to visit and take pictures. Very peaceful and colorful. Nice wall painting. Long corridor with a look down the slope to the lake front.

I walked here and happened upon this beautiful stations of the cross. There is a small chapel and another very pretty church attached. No fees and really private for meditating. It's worth a visit..
