Owner description: This church is the most famous monument in Riva. It was built in 1603 and it was consecrated in 1636 commissioned by Gaudenzio Madruzzo and his wife Alfonsina Gonzaga as a place of pilgrimage and custody of a miraculous shrine. The church is in an elegant Baroque style. On the outside it is square shaped, on the inside octagonal with five altars, three gates, vaults with frescos and stuccoes, confessionals in carved wood and marble pavements.

Although small, this is one of the most beautiful churches we've ever seen. Really something you shouldn't miss when you visit Riva del Garda

Bijou church, perfect proportions by Fermat's golden rule.
Bonita

Close to centre of Riva, pity no historical context in English.
Can be variable in opening hours.

This church is well worth a visit. Beautiful, colourful work on the walls and ceilings, not to be missed.

Stumbled across this by accident whilst killing time waiting for a bus. Exterior is unusually octagonal but otherwise unspectacular. The interior on the other hand is truly special.
There is a notice requesting that ladies should not wear shorts, minis, bare shoulders etc

this was a beautiful old church with amazing art and altars. I went in to escape the heat and have a quiet moment with God and it was Beautiful. I could have sat there all day. After all the ice creams, and hand bags etc. etc. it was good to find a haven so peaceful and tranquil in amazing surroundings and for me it was bliss!
