  • This is a lovely place and the view over lake Lugano is amazing. Very peaceful and a very old church. Just beautiful  more »
  • Beautiful location of the church on the lake and original the access staircase from the same. The most interesting thing is the frescoes on the right side of the aisle and on the inside of the entrance. The work of a Lombard yage master in 1360-70 are of good work and in a decent state of preservation. Through the gate (closed) of the presbytery you can see the 17th-century frescoes and the distinctly naif altar. Equally closed is the glazed veranda that protects the exterior frescoes with a universal judgment of the year 1400, virtually invisible from the outside for the reflection of the sun (at least in the morning). From what little I could see in retrospect from the photos taken by leaning the lens to the glass are interesting, although in not good conditions. Given the high number of unemployed in Champion after the casino closed, why not leave someone with the keys, given that the shrine is now one of the few points of interest in the country?

  • In the small town Italian enclave in Switzerland, is this ancient and beautiful sanctuary, introduced by a double staircase that goes directly from Lake Lugano (only access to church before the construction of the road). Many beautiful frescoes inside, mostly medieval.
