There is a clock tower to one side and what looked like an undercover area that used to be a market or equivalent to our corn exchanges. You can go inside for free when a service is on and... More

Beautiful and easy to find, definitely worth a visit when you are exploring Como. Lots of restaurants in the area, so you can sit and have a drink or something to eat while admiring the view.

Very pretty Duomo that housed some beautiful frescos and stained glass windows. A very peaceful retreat from the bustle of Como town centre.

Beautiful church in the heart of Como. Worth a visit to explore. Remember that you are in a church and modesty and quiet is required.

If you are thinking of visiting Como you must visit the Cathedral. It is a beautiful place to visit and see how wonderful this Cathedral actually is. Sat night is a good time to go and the subtle lighting is amazing. Well worth a visit.

You should definitely pay a visit. As with almost all Italian Churches / Cathedrals the architecture is fantastic and the interior is beautiful and serene. It is a peaceful and cool place for a few minutes on a hot summer day.
