Attraction details
Owner description: This church is the most famous monument in Riva. It was built in 1603 and it was consecrated in 1636 commissioned by Gaudenzio Madruzzo and his wife Alfonsina Gonzaga as a place of pilgrimage and custody of a miraculous shrine. The church is in an elegant Baroque style. On the outside it is square shaped, on the inside octagonal with five altars, three gates, vaults with frescos and stuccoes, confessionals in carved wood and marble pavements.

Stumbled across this by accident whilst killing time waiting for a bus. Exterior is unusually octagonal but otherwise unspectacular. The interior on the other hand is truly special.
There is a notice requesting that ladies should not wear shorts, minis, bare shoulders etc

this was a beautiful old church with amazing art and altars. I went in to escape the heat and have a quiet moment with God and it was Beautiful. I could have sat there all day. After all the ice creams, and hand bags etc. etc. it was good to find a haven so peaceful and tranquil in amazing surroundings and for me it was bliss!

If you like to visit churches then this one is a must as it is one of the best interiors I have seen in my many years of travelling the world and they provide a well designed full colour leaflet of the church for free.
