Church of S. Marta

In the centre of Menaggio, on Via Calvi, there is the church of S. Marta, not far from the lake.
It has ancient origins but was much altered during the nineteenth century.


Masonry building with a single nave with side chapel, small bell tower and roof covering; it is accessed with a few steps, is integrated with the historical building fabric of Via Calvi and, therefore, the outside is visible only the facade.

Cenni Storici

Going along the wide Via Calvi after about 25 meters, on the right side, you will find the neo-Gothic facade (rebuilt in 1885) of the church of S. Marta, mentioned in documents as the oratory of the Confraternity dedicated to the Saint.

On the facade you can see the Roman memorial plaque of Minicio Exorato, a notable of the empire; above it the town-arms. Inside the church there are some interesting paintings of the 17th century.
