- Tirano may be little out of the way, but the sanctuary is no doubt worth a visit when travelling by car from Switzerland (Sankt Moritz) or on the Bernina Express. - The inside is lavishly decorated with the usual good taste Italians usually display.

The whole roof is ornately decorated. There is also a massive wooden organ. This is also a historic place as supposedly the was an apparition of the virgin here in 1504.

This is a beautiful church, also known as the Basilica Madonna di Tirano. The artistry is amazing, especially the altar and the organ.

The cathedral Santuario della Beata Vergine di TIrano is well worth the 20 minutes walk front train station for a peaceful visit. The interior if of course magnificent.

Extremely beautiful church in the new town. About a 20 minute walk from the center of the old town. The organ alone is worth a visit. Style is mainly baroque. On your left as you enter is the place where the Madonna di Tirano appeared....More

Italy has so many beautiful, inspiring churches that it’s difficult to single this one out, but seeing all of the gifts and offerings left by people making special prayer requests was quite touching.
