We took a day trip to Tirano from Milan. After the big city and very hot weather it was refreshing experience. St. Martin Church is smaller and simpler than some churhces in Milan but we liked it. It's beautiful with nice pillars, ceiling, freskos and windows. Admission is free. It's a nice peaceful place.

The Chiesa di San Martico in in the center of old town Tirano. It is majestic as it is simple in character. No large stain glass windows or fancy altar but a wonderful organ never the less.

The bell tower was not open (as far as I could tell), but the sanctuary was open for visitors during the day. The interior is beautifully preserved with lovely frescoes in the apse. Peaceful and quiet - and a cool place to take a few minutes' reprieve from the summer sunshine. Lovely!

We stopped here on our way to St Moritz. The church was in a town square and there are nice views of the alps. It was a nice break for our trip to St Moritz.

Lovely old church in the centre of the old town, free to enter. The stained glass windows were a highlight, certainly worth a visit.

Nice place to have a look around and take in some of the history of the town. Church has been a very long time and see a lot of changes. Well worth a stop.

Birth of the parish was 1589 but the church is much older than this, but no one is certain how old. Although from the few records available there is a good chance that the bell tower dates from around the time of the original church which they think is mid 1200s. The church that stands here now was totally rebuilt in the mid 1600s; it has a nave, two aisles and three apses.
The interior is elegant rather than opulent, having pillars along the nave that are connected by arches which are tastefully embellished rather than ornate. The ceiling has rib vaults with only the nave ones featuring medallions. Along the aisles are a number of chapels, some of these are dedicated to St Joseph, the Virgin, St Anthony of Padua, St Peter and St John the Baptist. Each chapel has either paintings, carvings or statues.
The church houses a nice collection of stained glass windows which have been made in a more modern way, rather than traditional. There is good detail and the colours are vibrant.
On the side exit, is a mosaic panel, a symbol which you came across from time to time in Italy, an eye inside a triangle which is surrounded by rays of light....meaning God is watching over creation.
This church was an “out of the blue surprise” and I’m glad I was able to visit.
Dress codes apply.
Parish office across the square if closed.
