A must to visit, photo opportunities and historical value. The Church and chapel have frescos and architectural interest.

Just returned from 8 days in Baveno. Beautiful place. Sailed out and visited all the lovely Islands on Lake Maggiore. Well worth a visit. Lots of lovely restaurants. Stayed in Hotel Azalea and had a view overlooking the lake. Very friendly staff. Rooms spotlessly clean.

This is a nice but unremarkable square so how anyone could give it 5 stars I don't know. I went to Florence last year which had many places worthy of such reviews so to give this 5 leaves no room to award genuine historical wonders...More
