It's a beautiful church somewhat out-of-the-way but worth the effort to see. The frescoes in the back of the church were very impressive. An added curiosity are the glass crypts containing the remains of the first Comasco bishops.

Quiet, presumably as out of the main town centre and close to the wonderful cemetery this church was worth a visit. Contains some interesting relics.

An evocative old church that takes you back in time, this church has an imposing exterior. The interior has beautiful frescoes by a student of Giotto. If you are an art lover, see these and imagine the church of Giotto's time. It is about a 20-minute brisque walk from the main piazza.

I especcially enjoyed the affresco. Must be seen if you like roman style. I would also suggest to visit the next-door university.
