This Romanesque church with emblematic bell tower was once a lodging for pilgrims making their way to Rome along Lake Como’s western shore. The history of the church has always been bound with contiguous ancient medieval hospice. The single nave Romanesque church dates back to the 11th - 12th century and terminates in a semicircular apse.
Santa Maria Maddalena: Description
The external perimeter of the building is decorated with hanging bows and the entrance is proceeded by a porch, repeatedly restored. Inside there are some traces of frescoes and also worth seeing is the altar in scagliola, a typical technique of the Masters of the Intelvi Valley. But the most important attraction of this church is the Gothic bell tower, dating back to the 14th - 15th century.
