Beautiful church in the heart of Desenzano. Ornately decorated inside with mosaics. As it is still in ongoing use, tourisy visits are restricted.

The Duomo is a beautiful place to go. The artwork is beautiful and eventuality it centrally located, it is actually a very quiet place to go.

Mass was being taken in the small, beautiful chapel when we arrived and that leant atmosphere to our visit. It's a very lovely cathedral with interesting paintings. Worth seeing.

Desenzano's crown jewel...Picturesque Rennissance era cathedral on Lago di Garda's south shore and town center piazza. Beautiful stained glass, sculpture and frescoes abound. Period Gothic architecture, looks older than it is, try to attend a Sunday masd.

Very nice and in the centre of the town. Architecturally has some interesting features and works of art. Worth a visit. For those who want to attend mass times are very convenient.

This cathedral is nice but it is hardly ever open & was impossible to ascertain opening hours online or in the area. It is fairly central though so you should pop in if it's open when you're in the area but I wouldn't go especially.
