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.

  • I strongly recommend that you visit this church if you pass by Varenna, whether you are religious or not; it's beautiful and shows what people could build a long time ago (14th century).
