Map of Longley for Medieval Campione was renowned for its stonemasons, the Maestri Campionesi, 4176 LAKE LUGANO AROUND LAKE LUGANO whose skills were sought for buildings all over northern Italy; the only example that has survived unscathed in Campione is the little church of San Pietro (entirely glassed-in for protection), just off Piazza Roma. From here, Via Marco da Campione runs south along the lake, back to the arch. Santa Maria dei Ghirli April Oct daily 9am 6pm; Nov March Sat & Sun 9am 4.30pm About 700m south of Piazza Roma, and 100m before the arch, is the rather lovely church of Santa Maria dei Ghirli. Ghirli (swallows) refers to Campione’s well-travelled masons, who returned home only rarely. The church which shows its best side to the lake is filled with thirteenth-century frescoes; especially striking are the scenes on the south wall, showing Salome and Herodias in medieval courtly dress.
