You access the church through a portico of four round arches, dating from the Renaissance. Today the building is quite unusual, the result of the merging of three chapels, which were originally separate entities built at different times. Numerous fresco cycles can be seen both inside and outside the church, covering a period from the fourteenth to the nineteenth century.

Art and history combine impressively here in a natural picture of unsurpassed beauty. The place almost has the effect of a balcony projecting over Lago Maggiore and overlooking the Borromean Gulf, Stresa and the islands.

Inside the hermitage you find first the Southern Convent (XIV-XVII century), with interesting frescoes in the Sala del Camino, then the Conventino (XIII century) with a long 17th century fresco inspired by the Danse Macabre just below the first floor windows, and finally the church containing the chapel of Saint Catherine.
