The church belonged to the noble Motti family of Gravedona ed Uniti and was built between the 17th and 18th centuries facing the last square on the lakeside promenade, Piazza Mazzini.
Two large windows illuminate the few frescoes kept inside the religious building, including those of St Michael, the Madonna, St Anthony Abbot and Christ on the Cross. Of unique interest is the leather altar-frontal decorated with floral motifs, whose centre features the image of the Madonna of Solitude. The statue of the Virgin Mary wears a halo and a black cloak over a white embroidered dress. She holds the rosary in her hands and, in the solitude of her desperate torment, prays in the silent emptiness.
In the past it was thought that the church was dedicated to soldiers, but this was due to an error in the translation of the Spanish word “Soledad” by the local people, which was later discovered to mean solidarity not solitude.
