As churches go, there are many which are more ornate, old or with more character than Chiesa Giacomo.
However, its worth the 5 minute walk into the back locks of Bellagio for a quick visit. What does give it some character are the mosaic frescos behind the alters the internal stonework is also much more interesting than the fairly plain exterior

Well worth stepping into and it's a world away from the hustle and bustle of Bellagio. Wonderful bell tower that can be seen from anywhere on the lake

'Interesting example of the Roman-Lombard art (XII cent.), built between 1075 and 1125 by the Masters of Como. Inside mosaics of the early '900, rich altar of the end of '500, a "Deposition of Christ" by the Perugino school, an archaic cross (XII cent.), a triptych by Foppa (1432), a polychrome wooden sculpture of the "Buried Christ" of the Spanish-Baroque school.'

Though not well lit, even on a bright, sunny day, the interior is worth a look, and much more exciting than the very plain exterior. I was particularly taken with the Romanesque (or possibly earlier) ambo or pulpit with carved beasts on front and one side.
