This is a fantastic cathedral both inside and out. Nothing can really describe it, you need to see it for yourself. Take the metro, it's easy and lets you out right in the square.

The Como basilica was great. We didn't get much time inside because of an upcoming service. The workers were still very friendly and the locals were proud to talk about the church with us.

This is a lovely cathedral in Como. One has to wonder how come there is such a huge cathedral for such a tiny town. The facade of the cathedral is beautiful, and from several angles in the square - the entire facade looks almost 2-dimensional, which is a nice illusion. The interiors are lovely as well, with a very high... More

The Duomo sits in the main square of Como, just a few steps from the Lake's edge. Well worth a visit, the art and architecture will amaze you.

The cathedral is in a beautiful gothic/baroque style and has lovely stained glass windows and statues of several saints. Outside in the square are many restaurants and cafes if you want to sit down for a meal or coffee. Souvenir shops can be found outside, too.

It is a pity that the square in front of this duomom is small since if it was not you can appreciate more the beauty of this building from all sides of perspective. However, despite all of this it is a must see location once you arrive at Como.
