We much preferred this fine church to the Duomo which is just a few minutes walk away. It has a fine neo-Romanesque exterior (although the clock with it's modern lettering rather than roman numerals looks a little odd - I think it was only built about 100 years ago). There are also traces of romanesque inside although there's mostly baroque elements. Some interesting frescoes obviously dating from the middle ages were the highlight for us. There's an attractive piazza in front of the church which provides a good lunch stop with views of the church's front facade. Definitely worth a visit if you're strolling around Como's histroic centre.

This Church is slightly off the main piazza of Old Como, but is well worth the walk. It is beautiful inside with a mixture of ages of the Church. Frescos and stone work are from several different time periods and the entire church feels like Catholicism lives here.

This old church is worth stopping in and just sitting to enjoy its ancient surrounds.
It is an unusual shape which makes it more interesting than a standard church.
The atmosphere is very peaceful. A great place for some time-out.

Although in the city centre, this church is less busy than the duomo and worth a visit.

It is tucked away in a corner of one of Como's city squares but is worth making an effort to visit.

Only saw this beautiful building from the outside. Very nice church in a piazza of the same name. Recommended when in the area.

This is a very beautiful church with paintings on the walls and high ceiling. The altar area is impressive with the overhead paintings and dome. The church contains a very pretty statue of Mary against a long blue drape. It is definitely worth stopping in for a look.

What an impressive old building with so much history to tell. Definitely a must see when in Como. Flush in the middle of town.

Although we didn't visit here at the right times to enter the building itself, the outside is impressive. The piazza di San Fedele was a stunning place to people watch with an ice cream in hand or at one of the many restaurants here. It really showed the history and age of the area. Well worth visiting but remember to dress modestly like any of the religious buildings in the area.

We saw the outside of this lovely basilica while exploring town on our last day in Como. There are lots of resauraunts on Piazza di San Fedele, but this basilica dominates the square!

Lake Como's city walk is peppered with grand buildings with splendid architectures and historic relevance.
Broletto, neoclassical-styled Centro Storico, Piazza Alessandro Volta, Basilica di San Fedele, Cathedral of Como with awesome sculptural reliefs, Basilica di Sant'Abbondio
are several landmarks and spots that should not be missed while exploring the streets and neighborhoods of Como.
