  • This church overlooking Locarno and is a place of pilgrimage, can be reached directly with the rack from the city, whether on foot or by car from the city center, but it's hard to find parking. The Church is beautiful both inside the facade, but above all it is in a beautiful location on the Lake and Locarno, which can be seen from the terrace in front.

  • Only for the trip there, the views... it is worth. In addition, it is a very nice site. A "must" go

  • View from the Church overlooking the Lake, nice, a whole city. Sun was low because in the morning time, visited the Lake side scenery is blurry. In the afternoon we recommend the evening. If you come by car cable is also available, but hundreds of meters in front pay parking is convenient. (One hour 1 EURO)

  • The parish church of Santa Maria Assunta was built between 1464 and 1474 for Dominican monks built and dedicated the Virgin Mary. The Church, directly on the shore of the Lake, was built on dedicated to the remains of one of our Lady Church, which originally was a pagan temple. From the exterior, above all, the church door crafted from marble with engraved symbols of the passion is interesting. The Interior of the church stands out through numerous frescos, created in the 16th century.
