  • Oldest of the duomo and the basilica of San Fedele, is presented in its original form thanks to a restoration (between the delicate and nonchalant) XIX century, which changed the look I had assumed the Church over the centuries, bringing it back to its original Romanesque structure. Splendid front view (don't miss the capitals) and the apse with mullioned Windows decorated, as are the twin towers (one of which is in fact the result of a restoration offhand). Within the spectacular fresco in the apse (the Tribune is sadly gone almost entirely lost) with the story of the life of Christ, Saints and prophets. Nice also the cloister, legacy of the old convent and now University environment.

  • The nearby former monastery is now used as a University. The double bell tower is a real attraction. It is popular with tourists from every part of the world. It's dated 1010, but even before 1000 there are records on site. A Romanesque basilica well restored and well kept. A wonder of the world.

  • 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.

  • Beautiful Basilica, characteristic for the two bell towers, before the Cathedral Council to visit it.
