  • The Church of "Santi Pietro e Paolo" in Ascona dates back to the 13th. Century. It has beautiful frescos on the ceiling of the altar. Although it has an austere interior, it is worthy to mention the relics of Santa Sabina martyr given as a gift to a certain Bernardo Pasini from Ascona, who was in the service of Pope Clement XI in the 17th Century.
  • Beautiful church and beautiful story

  • The Church in the old town is deliberately contradictory between nave and belfry. While the Bell Tower from raw age proudly presents old stone, appears the nave with its bright exterior as a young bride. It is a very beautiful sight that even gaining appeal with this dichotomy. Inside, the walls and ceiling in the altar area fascinates me. Remarkable ability to set new accents in the sacral architecture and art.
