Right next to the Basilica of the same name, this church has several paintings and statues that make it worth the visit. Appears to be more from the Renaissance period.

Took ferry over to Bellagio and walked all around. Really pretty place to people watch and window shop although I did buy a beautiful pair of sneakers. Walked up to Monastery Gardens as museum was closed and then across and down to this beautiful church....More

If you are looking for a typical church to see this one will show you more. Peaceful, great architecture, and a beautiful setting makes it worthwhile your visit.

Easy to miss in Bellagio, this is a tiny Catholic Church. With understated grandeur it has a quiet charm and serenity. Unlike the ornate churches in Venice, Florence or Rime this is simple and lovely.

A beautiful church up on the hill. It was very dark inside. I would recommend a short visit to this old church.

Typical Italian church with few windows but beautiful inside. Very peaceful and prayerful compared to the larger churches elsewhere. Lovely bells.

I actually heard this church before I saw it properly! The bells could be heard from the hotel all evening so in the morning I set out to find it. It is very old world and elegant although it's hard to get a proper picture...More

The San Giacomo church is located on the Piazza della Chiesa in the central part of Bellagio. The tower is dominating the view on Bellagio from the lake. The church itself looks not special from the outside, a disadvantage is the fact that cars are...More

We stayed in an apartment across the Piazza from the church to be awaken each morning by the beautiful bells! The church is a hidden treasure and certainly worth spending time to experience the quiet spirit of the place!

Unimposing from the outside, this ancient church has a beautiful altar that is worth seeing. The font is in naïve style and quite unusual.
