What travellers are saying
- We were so happy we went. It was fairly easy to get to from Milan and definitely off the beaten path. Amazing views, amazing and quaint restaurants, and just a perfect and relaxing day!Written 29 July 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- A tiny statue of Madonna with little Jesus appeared in the early 1500s among the branches of an ash tree, according to popular belief it was invoked by a shepherd who had just been bitten by a snake that did not die.
In 1510 a first small church was created on the site of the discovery , then during many years and many miracles the church was enlarged.
In 1518 was built a friars convent beside the church who it’s still active.
Facade with frescoed portico , above the portico a beautiful rose window completed a very simple facade .
Inside with one nave and five chapels for each side, the twos beside the central altar are bigger and protected by beautiful wrought iron gate, the one on the right contain the small statue of Madonna of ash tree with beautiful frescoe by Domenico Morone done on 16th century .
Of the same period are the beautiful paintings done by Paolo Farinati and are in the three chapels on the left side, the fourth chapel on the left is decorated by a beautiful painting of Zeno da Verona depicting Saints Peter and John dated 1541.
Unusual the central altar with beautiful pipe organ .
From a door next to the Madonna’s chapel is possible to enter in the first cloister with frescoes dated 1653 by Pietro Muttoni , the second cloister is also frescoed and all over the walls you can see mani ex voto and pictures of miraculous people .Written 29 October 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- A fascinating and buzzing small town, set amongst those Austrian fortifications. One of those places where you keep discovering something new every day. A trip around the walls in a small boat (10 euro) is well worth it, giving you the true scale of those mighty walls. And although hectic along the main frontage, there are quieter spots if you seek them out.
Great place!Written 2 October 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.

- Went here to get a map and handy information. Staff were really nice and spoke several languages. Bus tickets are cheaper to buy here than on the bus. Only thing is that we got old bus timetables with summer hours. Also didn't mention how delayed busses are regularly. Info point is very central. Worth a visit.Written 22 September 2019

- My husband and I have been to Pescheria in the past and walked past this building but it’s only been open to tours since last (2017) year. The prison had been in use till 2000 and then left largely untouched until the tours started again. We went into the Pescheria ticket office only to buy bus tickets and ended up with a tour to the prison as well! It’s only through the tourist office you can get tickets - this is really important so if you want to do the tour go to the tourist office first to organise before stating your day. Our tour guide was great (aargh forgot her name), so friendly, let you have plenty of time and knew several languages (as did the tourist office staff) which really puts you to shame. She was very enthusiastic about the prison, our audio guide narrates the prison in your language but she added to it as well. There were only four of us on the tour, it doesn’t seem well known yet but it’s well worth a look and is very reasonably priced. It is spooky, you need torches to see around so beware if that sort of thing makes you uncomfortable!
On the audio tour, it does the whole area of Pescheria and not just the prison, there are signs with QR codes / numbers for the corresponding part of the guide. These can be hired from the tourist office BUT there is an app too, not sure what it’s called, but if you can find it in advance, means you can do the audio tour of Pescheria for free. These are approx little 1 min talks of which there are about 25 dotted around Pescheria to tell you the history of the area.Written 12 April 2018

- We are two couples that scheduled the premium tasting. A quick walk about the grounds provided an impressive look at the amazing operation at this winery. A large production house that is awash in technology and history - absolutely immaculate conditions. (The cellar masters should be so proud!) We were thrilled to have Antonio as our guide - he was very informative and sociable. We loved our time with him. We had a four wine tasting which could not have been more enjoyable. Found the Amarone I had been looking for all trip!!! Loved the single varietal Corvina - what a treat, sparkling Lugana, etc. Thank you Antonio for a wonderful stop!!!Written 12 April 2023

The facade is like a Roman temple with three statues over the top.
