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.

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.

Not much to do in Gravedona but this cathedral is worth your time. Much of the interior of the older building is original. Peaceful and quiet beachfront front for contemplation out back.
