The parish church Santa Maria Assunta rises in the centre of Riva del Garda and looks out on the spacious Piazza Cavour. The present building, first mentioned in 1106, is a Baroque reconstruction(1728). It is an aisleless church and it has a side chapel for the Suffrages; it has numerous altars with decorations and stuccoes. Behind the high altar stands out the great painting of Our Lady of the Assumption of Craffonara, but the best work is kept near the fourth altar on the left, Our Lady of Sorrows. At the adjacent small piazza Craffonara we find a bas-relief bust by the artist Francesco Trentini (1790-1837) and an ancient column. The ancient church, later destroyed, stood on this small piazza.

If ornate Italian churches are your thing, this will not disappoint. The play of light in the interior emphasis the richness of the decoration, but rather than a sense of spiritualism the place left me with a sense of gaudiness and exceptional expenditure. The glory...More

Nice church that as ever is well worth a look. Italian churches are usually beautiful and this one is as well. Truly impressive inside and located in the centre of the town.

Not to be confused with a church of the same name in Riva del Garda, this is the parish church of Garda town, sitting just below La Rocca alongside the main road as you approach the town. Although it sits directly beside the road, the...More

Worth seeing if you are passing by. Nice shrine to blessed virgin Mary attached to the main church. Light a candle and say a prayer.

Nice church in Riva. We did not go in however as the church seemed busy at the time and we did not want to disturb patrons.

This is a catholic church probably dating from the 19th century, when craftmanship was at its height. The nave consists of five bays, two wide ones and a narrow one which most of the parishioners use as the entrance. At the rear of the church...More

A splendid 12th century church within an historic coastal square. Absolutely stunning. With the most impressive altar and frescos.
