Trip Planner Europe  /  Italy  /  Lombardy  /  Province of Como  /  Cantu
Cantù is a city and comune in the Province of Como, located at the center of the Brianza zone in Lombardy. It is the second largest city in Brianza.HistoryCantù was a source of conflict between the cities of Milan and Como. The Sforza of Milan took control permanently in the 15th century.Main sightsThe main attraction of Cantù is the Basilica di San Vincenzo in the frazione Galliano, which was consecrated in 1007 by the future Archbishop of Milan, Ariberto da Intimiano. The building was sold in 1801 to become a private dwelling, before being bought by the municipality in 1909 and reconsecrated in 1934. The basilica contains the oldest frescoes in Lombardy consisting of series of stories from the Bible and the saints. The frescoes in the apse are especially fine, and those in the nave probably by this master painter's followers. Other sights are the Piazza Garibaldi, named for Giuseppe Garibaldi, and the San Paolo Church, whose bell tower is one of the symbol of the city.SportPallacanestro Cantù, the basketball club of the city, won the European Champions Cup twice in 1982 and 1983.
