This church is the most famous monument in Riva. It was built in 1603 and it was consecrated in 1636 commissioned by Gaudenzio Madruzzo and his wife Alfonsina Gonzaga as a place of pilgrimage and custody of a miraculous shrine. The church is in an elegant Baroque style. On the outside it is square shaped, on the inside octagonal with five altars, three gates, vaults with frescos and stuccoes, confessionals in carved wood and marble pavements.

The outside of this church is very plain and to be honest, we only looked inside out of nosiness. What delights awaited us. You have to visit this church, to marvel at the interior. It is absolutely stunning, from floor to ceiling (especially the ceiling)...More

During our stay in Riva, we passed this Inviolata Church everytime on our way from/to our hotel. And it became our favourite in Riva. The church was built in Baqoque style, in the beginning of the 17th century. From the outside, it looks like 'one...More

Churches in Italy, although still dedicated to the praise of the Lord, are by far some of the most beautiful and reverent places I've visited. Pure peace and love radiates from this church x

We drove through Riva Del Garda while seeing Lake Garda and stopped for lunch. Made the walk up to this church. Single room building but amazing ceiling art and good for a quick visit. No cost.

We walked into the town for coffee and decided to look into this church which from the outside looks a little dirty but when you go inside wow totally not what you expect to see.
