Church with an austere exterior but lovely inside. Located on the main street running through the town it is well worth a visit. Cool on a hot day too.

This sanctuary has an interesting history and you should read it from the brochure (cost .5 euros) you can purchase at the church/sanctuary. The interior is very ornate but beautiful and is well worth the visit.

Beautiful little church. Quite nice, especially when considering the church is in a small town, Cannobio, that is a little off the beaten track!

We visited Chapel of Pieta having climbed a long flight of steps, but the climb was well worth while, A small chapel a church and outside stations of the cross were wonderful.

I have visited this beautiful church on many occasions. In the 1500s a painting of the pieta began to bleed tears. The Roman Catholic priest who eventually became a saint, Carlos Borromeo, ordered a church to be built on the site which was done. It...More
