I am not a religious church-goer but on my travels I always visit churches that are on a way. I love architecture, and churches fascinate me from the architectural point of view. This is a lovely medieval church. it sits on the edge of the old town, so you will probably go past it one way or the other. It is located at a small square with couple of restaurants so you can sit and enjoy your drink with the view of the church. Beautifully restored.

The church was on the edge of the main square and we had to walk past it to get to the sites we had come to see.
The outside is imposing and has a nice feel to it
We also spent a few minutes exploring the inside
Nice place

Thank Uday T

Small local church located on the San Giorgio Piazza. Well restored, offers mass in English during the summer months.

We popped in to look around here on a quick trip to Varenna. Beautiful old church. We watched a wedding party arrive from the square opposite while having lunch too.

It's located on the main driving road with an information centre right beside it. There are a few restaurants nearby. The church and the bell tower are beautiful especially at night. We were lucky enough to see the Orchestra I Pomeriggi Musicali from Milan performing classical music in the church on our first night in Varenna. It was a great and memorable performance.
