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.

The inside of this church is absolutely amazing. Take a few minutes to admire the massive church organ and the amazing frescos. Beautiful.

Came here just to fill in time between trains and found such a joy. The house, the gardens and the availability of relevant information was wonderful.

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.

This is located near to the railway station. Inside there is a big musical organ and sound is reverberating. There are good paintings and murals. Outside is a good facade and gives a feeling of old rich culture.

We stopped here on the Bernina Express. There really aren’t many must see sights in Tirano but this is one of them. Nice church but nothing astounding.
