“Closed for refurbishment!”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

Major refurbishment (May 2014). Looks like it will be quite a long time before it will reopen for "business". One side chapel is open but strike this off your walking plans for a while! Especially as it's uphill to get there!

“Not now!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Lugano's cathedral is undergoing a complete restauration, and is therefore closed; only the small, but nice chapel dedicated to Mary of all Graces is open to public.

“Soul satisfying”
Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

The church has a marvelous view of the city and Lake Lugano, located halfway between the railway station and the lake. It has a lovely early Renaissance facade and a Baroque interior with seveal lovely frescoes. The church dates back to at least 1078, and is well worth a visit for its beauty, the view, and its soul-satisfying peacefulness.

“Beautiful Church”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Well placed in the small town and a feeling of awe and holiness on a hot day. A spiritual oasis that relaxed us and left us content.

“BEING RENOVATED”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

The main church is almost completely obscured with scaffolding and temporary walls. The small side chapel is open and beautiful, though.
