Lonely Planet review

This simple Romanesque church contains two frescos by Bernardino Luini dating from 1529. Covering the entire wall that divides the church in two is a grand didactic illustration of the crucifixion of Christ. The closer you look, the more scenes of Christ’s Passion are revealed. The power and vivacity of the colours are astounding.
