About Church Of San Pietro In Mavino Or Chiesa Di San Pietro In Mavino, Sirmione
At first glance, this unassuming church surrounded by olive trees doesn’t look like much… then you find out that it is 1300 years old (built in Lombard times). Then you notice the Romansque bell tower. Then you find out that it was used as a military hospital, and the grounds around it are full of buried victims of the plague. Naturally, you’ll go inside, where you’ll find:
- Three apses containing: a Byzantine Christ Pantocrator, a Madonna enthroned, a Crucifixion
- 12th-16th century frescoes
- A monolith of light stone
You may even want to visit at night, when it is lit up from inside, bringing lovely illumination to its stained glass windows.
