Church of S. Maria Assunta

Church of S. Maria Assunta in Navazzo
The front of the church, with its spacious porch, faces towards the village, but the gardens around the building offer sweeping views over the lake. Believed to have been founded in the 1500s, the church was consecrated by Bishop Antonio Boscaioli on 15 August 1667. It has since been restored twice, the first time between 1722 and 1724, and the second time in 1930. The chapel to the left of the high altar preserves frescoes painted prior to the 16th Century, proving that it was built before the main body of the church. The altarpiece of the high altar, depicting the Assumption of the Virgin Mary and the canvas of the Last Supper above the altar to the left of the high altar are the work of Giovanni Andrea Bertanza.
