We didn’t have much time but visiting the church was an unexpected surprise. Plain on the outside but beautiful on the inside. Just looking at the organ suspended with thousands of pipes was worth a visit. Lovely.

This is located near to the railway station. Inside there is a big musical organ and sound is reverberating. There are good paintings and murals. Outside is a good facade and gives a feeling of old rich culture.

We stopped here on the Bernina Express. There really aren’t many must see sights in Tirano but this is one of them. Nice church but nothing astounding.

Stepping into this small church is like walking into a treasure box. Every surface is covered in ornamentation. It is a feast for the eyes with countless sculptural reliefs and gilded surfaces. The gigantic pipe organ is encased in carved wood. If you are in...More
