Chiesa di Santa Maria Maddalena

Church Lake of Como, Italy

The romantic style of Chiesa di Santa Maria Maddalena

The oratory of St. Mary Magdalene has been inseparably linked to the ancient medieval hospice for pilgrims since its origins. This is testified since 1169 when the oratory, mentioned in a document drawn up on the island, is called: "S. Mary Magdalene et hospitale ". Inside the church there are portions of paintings, including the fresco of the apsidal basin depicting the constellations or the one representing some members of the Giovio family who offer themselves to the Virgin surrounded by Saints, dating back to the 16th century.
