We enjoyed the walk up to the Chiesa and the peace and quiet around the place. A large monument honoring the fallen of the different conflicts invites to a quiet moment. Great walk also with kids and a stroller.

A place of calm and serenity away from worldly concerns. Signposted and so not difficult to find. Beautiful old wall painting us too.

Away from the main hubbub of Sirmione this church is delightful, a place of calm and peace. Very plain and simple inside with centuries old frescoes.

Very old Romanesque church remarkable in its austerity and simplicity. Such a lovely tranquil oasis away from the crowds of Sirmione center. Surprisingly, the old frescoes of the 14th century did not lose their colors, the altar and the walls retained their authenticity over the...More
