Located in the city centre the Basilica dedicated to Saint Fidelis martyr is a must see. The building has a grand setting with three naves, three apses and is covered by a dome. In the basilica there are many frescoes, paintings and beautifully decorated chapels to enjoy. Be sure not to miss the the painting of the Madonna tra i santi Sebastiano e Rocco (1508) and depiction of Purgatory.

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.

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.

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.

Another beautiful church that I happened upon walking back through the old town towards the water. It is located in the center of the walled city and certainly worth a stop.

We used the funicular to get to the top of the mountain and this church is one of the first sights you see when going up the path.

Design inside was spectacular and definitely worth a visit while exploring the mountain.

Couple of nice restaurants nearby, but very pricey as you might expect.
