San Vittore, Cannobio

Weather as yesterday, starting warm, bright and breezy and turning overcast and cold in the afternoon. The forsythia will be in bloom tomorrow.






San Vittore, Cannobio

Although a church is recorded on this site as far back as 1076, the existing building dates from the 18th century. It is home to the SS Pietà, an image of the Virgin Mary that is said to have bled prior to a plague that devastated the surrounding countryside but left Cannobio largely unscathed. The picturesque candlelight festival of the SS Pietà takes place in Cannobio every January 7 and 8.
