Tower of St. Peter and Paul church
The St. Peter and Paul church (Santi Pietro e Paolo) dominates the view of the shoreline of Ascona. Therefore you cannot miss it. It is set back one block from the promenade.
The church was first mentioned in 1264. It consists of a long hall with a wooden ceiling and two side naves which have its own altars dedicated to the mother of god of the mountain Karmel and the Holy Trinity. The main hall ends with a choir from the 16th century. Please see the second photo.
The tower or campanile is from the 16th century. Part of the facade of the church and it south wall has been changed to new Gothic style in 1860.
Directions: In the center of Ascona close to the promenade.
