Overview

Saint Andrea is the Patron Saint of the fishermen. The church is located above the oldest part of Torbole sul Garda in a panoramic position, with view on Lake Garda and surrounded by an olive grove. Saint Andrea’s Chapel was first mentioned in a document dating back to 1175. The church was rebuilt in late Baroque style after the devastation by the French troops of General Vendôme in 1703, but former architectonic elements were maintained. The alter-piece in the apse is noteworthy, and represents Saint Andrea’s Martyrdom, by the painter Giambettino Cignaroli (1706-1770) from Verona. The figures in the painting, detailed and realistic, are believed to have been modeled after commoners from the village. In the two aisles there are two wooden statues, representing St. Giuseppe and the so called Madonna Romani, after the name of the sponsor who donated it.

We visited this lovely church in September of 2016 - it is quite a steep walk up to it - but certainly worth the effort! It affords one of the loveliest panoramic views I've seen...

We were there only at night when the church was closed. However, the view over the town and lake, and into the mountains was excellent. Pity we had to leave the following morning, otherwise we would have gone back to have a look.

Central to Torbole and near Lake Garda; plenty of seating outside as well as inside. Seems to have market stalls at least weekly. Not ornate and fairly modern; upkeep excellent. Attractive Altar.

Church and its surrounding is nice with excellent position above the center of the city. You will surely enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and take the pictures of lake, mountains and rooftops down there.

This is a lovely church, sitting quite high up with lovely views of the Lake. It is free, and on entry the alter is stunning. It is well worth a visit.
