Very beautiful building.....but be warned you cannot enter if you are wearing shorts! Also steer clear of the café/bar opposite (Duomo bar)...dreadful service and the food is even worse!!

I was thoroughly impressed. Have seen several cathedrals, castles and monuments but this place ranks up there. The main room is absolutely enormous and has to be seen to be understood. I'm not even the religious type but there was clearly some time spent making this this what it is today (apparently took them several centuries to complete). Stop by... More

The cathedral is large, busy with tourists and some worshippers and yet it held a strongly spiritual atmosphere. It was a little dark inside - some might say a bit gloomy? - but it has some fine windows. Although we didn't feel it offered anything distinctively different to merit a long visit, it is one of the main attractions most... More

As Duomos go, this isn't as old as Florence or Milano,but just as magnificent in it's own way The tapestries were a surprise and breathtaking. It's worth finding the small but extremely old orthodox church behind the Duomo.

I spent more time gazing at the facade and the north side of the building than I did the inside. One of the most spectacular churches in Italy from the outside.

This was an amazing find while visiting Como. The cathedral is actually quite spectacular and offers a very gothic/renaissance feel. There are beautiful tapestry works as well. While smaller than most cathedrals, this is a beautiful space. Very artistic!

A wonderful gothic cathedral with a high dome by Juvara and many pieces from XIV to XVII century. The facade alone deserves the visit.
