Spent about 30 minutes here. The inside of the church is absolutely beautiful! The one Euro to light up the organ is worth it! Saw where the Virgin Mary stood that inspired the building of the church. You don't need a whole lot of time...More

This is a beautiful church to visit. From the outside it is very nice but inside is just gorgeous. I'll add some pictures. It has a outstanding organ that is very ornately carved. You will love it.

Visited here as part of the day tour before catching the Bernina Express. This is a beautifully decorated church with the one of the main attractions being the very large pipe organ. Worth seeing if in Tirano.

There is not too much to do in Tirano so the Church od the Madona gets big attention but to my opinion, it is just another nice church on the way.

The first stone of this church was laid in 1505. Its beauty is unparalleled. Located near the remarkably scenic area between the Swiss and Italian border in Lombardy region of Italy, the church is an absolute must on any travel itinerary.
