Chiesa di San Giovanni, Torno

View across Lake Como

Tiny lakeside Torno and its few villas and (of course!) churches sit on a point on Lake Como.

The Romanesque-Gothic Chiesa di San Giovanni is the main attraction as it contains a nail from the cross, supposedly. I was impressed by the landscaped tiered cemetery fronting the lake.
