  • I live in Como and I was born here and this is one of the attractions that you little well be proud of. The basilica is dedicated to the patron saint of the city and it is beautiful! If you like places of worship that offer intimate recollection and suggestive emotions or simply like the Romanesque architecture, this won't have to lose! Unfortunately is located in a part of town a bit quiet and a bit out of town, anyway is located along the old via Regina, historic street that leads from Como up to alto Lario. Its façade facing the mountain and opposite is unfortunately also the railway. Behind it lies the town, but is divided by it from the busy road-called "Freeway". The exterior is therefore somewhat sacrificed and undervalued, even though the two twin bell towers rise from the surrounding buildings, but the magic is all in, five naves divided by columns of stone stark and clean; at the bottom of a tall and slender, completely frescoed apse with a cycle of events on the life of Christ that takes your breath away. Precious also the cloister of the adjacent Benedictine monastery, now fully restored and the Faculty of law. The photos are hard to do given the poor lighting during the day. Between late August and early September there is the Festival of the Patron Saint where in the soil adjacent to the basilica you can taste the typical dishes of Como and visit the exhibition of farm animals; culinary event not to be missed by the quality of the cuisine and the highly efficient organization!

  • Cathedral predates the current Cathedral, is dedicated to Saint Abbondio Bishop, patron of the city and Diocese of Como. Indispensable a visit when you browse in the Lakeside Town.
