There are many churches in Italy. Some are simply stunning like this one with ornate wooden carvings and also an impressive organ. It is said to have been built because of miracles which occured here. It is worth stopping even for a few photo opportunities.

The basilica Madonna do Tirano is the showpiece of the city. Built to honour the apparation of the Virgin Mary to a shepard, it is quite a site to visit.

We didn’t have much time but visiting the church was an unexpected surprise. Plain on the outside but beautiful on the inside. Just looking at the organ suspended with thousands of pipes was worth a visit. Lovely.
