It has a beautiful, ornate interior even though the outside is rather plain. The story of the bleeding picture and sacred rib needs to be understood to fully... More

Beautiful little church. Quite nice, especially when considering the church is in a small town, Cannobio, that is a little off the beaten track!

We visited Chapel of Pieta having climbed a long flight of steps, but the climb was well worth while, A small chapel a church and outside stations of the cross were wonderful.

The church is described in... More

The Roman Catholic priest who eventually became a saint, Carlos Borromeo, ordered a church to be built on the site which was done. It has exquisite ceilings, stained glass windows over the alter and superb religious painting surrounding. Sit... More
