  • Stunning church in Como, the size will amaze you. Very worthwhile visit. Beautiful surrounds. Incredible to think that this church was built to these proportions for the size of the community 
  • Let me start by saying that I live in Como but still when you are in Como is required to visit the beautiful and magnificent cathedral. Interesting tapestries and very nice the large central rose window. is well preserved and recently renovated. The external facades are lovely to see. I have seen many cttedrali all over Italy and this is among the most beautiful and well maintained.

  • Surprisingly beautiful inside. Ceilings are painted a bright sky blue with gold stars. At the moment there is a special tapestry exhibit from 1600s. Look for marker in floor for Sr Volta the Italian electrical scientist from Como for whom voltage is named.
