Church
Admire medieval stonemasonry at Chiesa di San Giorgio, overlooking Lake Como. The church features three naves, placed on cylindrical pillars and sharp arches. Built between 1250 and 1300, the stone structure includes a large rose window above the massive entrance doors. A tall rectangular bell tower with a clock was added in 1653. A large wooden crucifix hovers above the main altar under magnificent vaulted ceilings, while the floor is covered with black marble.

  • Nice indeed. In the central square stands the Church of San Giorgio. I highly recommend you take a few minutes to visit the same

  • We were often for a long weekend in Varenna, as well as in July. We escaped the heat in the small church. A nice place to keep briefly held.
