While out walking the local area we came across this lovely church. Went in for some peaceful quiet time. Atmosphere is very quiet and pleasant. Outside didn’t inspire us but the inside did. Quite impressive.

We visited this church as it was on the main drag along the lake. It's facade is plain and uninviting but this inside was indeed interesting. I found the altar, several statues and the ceiling the most important. Definitely worth a few minutes if you...More

Stopped in before mass and enjoyed the quiet. Beautiful artwork and religious relics throughout. Very ancient feel and yet active with various Masses. Did not note any in English but the spirit still moves me here

Beautiful and calm. We arrived just at the end of a mass and popped inside to listen to the last few minutes. Lots of charm and a lovely choir.

You will see it as you walk the waterfront. It has a simple façade and interior. It is worth a quick stop as you visit the old section of Stresa.

Very peaceful and welcoming. A typical old Catholic church full of side chapels with really inspiring paintings. We always like visiting churches for a moment of quiet in an otherwise busy day.

From the outside a fairly ordinary looking church but beautiful inside, worth a few minutes just to see the paintings

A beautiful church in the centre of Stresa. Please when visiting ensure you wear the right attire and photographs must not be taken.
