  • It was built in three stages: the chancel (early 16th century); the courtroom aisles between 1589 and 1625; the neoclassical façade, between 1788 and 1791, designed by Leopoldo Pollock. Sights: the vault of the apse frescoed by Giovanni Ghisolfi; the altar in Baroque style of fratelli Buzzi of Viggiù, completed in 1742 designed by Bartolomeo bubble; the processional cross, based on designs by Floriano Bodini and offered in memory of Paul VI. Valuable is, in the right aisle, the chapel of our Lady of Sorrows, a painted wooden group created in the mid-16th century, after the miraculous apparition of three stars, which took place on 3 may 1678. Point out the vault of the nave, decorated with stucco by Ludovico Pogliaghi and three frescoes by Giovan Battista Zari. Impressive, but the set of style too diverse prevents to appreciate the numerous works of art it houses. Also, it is always very dark, which is not the values.
