A little bit of peace.
Sep 2020
Worth a visit, if only to sit and listen to the bells with no other distractions. The views from outside are stunning!

Little but stunning
Jul 2019 • Family
We visited the church while exploring Gravedona. It is square inside, not a typical cross based architecture of most churches you must be used to. Some remnants of frescos on the walls. Some have a bit of a relief to them if you take a closer look. We were lucky to enjoy the place on a couple of occasions. July this year there are some concerts happening each week and we enjoyed the first one with a small symphonic orchestra. The acoustics is great. If you’re here this July, check the north lake come website to see what’s on. Definitely worth going.
Ps. And don’t miss the church next door! :-)

Visit the crypt next door
Sep 2018 • Business
The original church with it's tower is really interesting. You can pick out reused pieces of Roman masonry above the door.
But make sure you visit the crypt of the adjoining church, it's well worth a visit. You can see parts of the older church below the one in use today and again, re used marble and masonry from much older buildings.

Stunning church in context on Lake Como
Oct 2018
Magnificent church from early middle ages, with a beautiful prospect of Lake Como. The town of Gravedona is stunning, especially along the waterfront where there are a range of restaurants and bars. There is a good tourist office in the Square. Best cafe/bar is at the far end towards the large Cardinals mansion

Beautiful unrestored old church
Oct 2017 • Couples
I found this church so charming...not the huge glamorous cathdral type but small and quaint. I wouldn't make a special trip just to see it but if you are in Gravedona it is worth the visit.

Beautiful church and lovely frescos
Sep 2017 • Couples
You must go inside and see the fabulous frescos on the walls of the old church, they are really good. Don't forget to look at the floor mosaics which are really old. just to the right of the church there is some stairs to a crypt with some more old frescos and old columns. There is a light switch which can be turned on for a better viewing of the frescos. The surroundings of the church with the lake and views are just wonderful.

Nice Middle Age church
Jun 2017 • Couples
The church looks simple from the outside, but the interior accommodates a nice range old frescoes of biblical performances. In one of the corners a small altar offers the visitor the oppertunity to burn a candle.
