Sant'Alessandro Church
Lasnigo, Lombardy, Italy

           Sant'Alessanodro on peninsula 
        between Como and Lecco  (Link 1.)

"On the road that goes to Bellagio, outside the village of Lasnigo, stands the Romanesque church devoted to S. Alessandro, that you can reach following a way flanked by the little chapels of the Via Crucis. The church was built in the XII century and partially rebuilt in 1400. Interesting are the Romanesque bell-tower and the inside frescoes by Gerolamo Gorla and Andrea De Passeri dating back to the XVI and XVII centuries." (Link 1.)

  • "Sant'Agostino, built by the Cistercians in the early 14th century, heavily renovated in the 20th. The interior and adjoining cloister have 15th–17th century frescoes, but most of the decoration is Baroque."
