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.

A very historical site set by the banks of the lake Come. Worth a visit whilst traveling the northern side of lake Como.

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.

Faded orginal murals adorn the walls inside a cool soaring stone interior,surprisingly spacious.solid but at the same time drawing the light in, impressive for such an out of the way location. A Font with a beautiful metal work lid.

Beautiful old church. Well worth a look. Doesn't take long to have a good look around. We visited while out biking... quite a good way to get there... or easy walk from the village lake front area.

If you find yourself in Gravedona, this church is worth a look. Lovely very old frescoes. Takes about fifteen minutes to see everything.
