Superb example of Romanesque style architecture, one of the most ancient basilicas in Lombardy! Not to be missed

This is the oldest church in Como and the condition of its fabric is very impressive. Much of the external decoratuive carving is 11th C and looks now as if it was done last year. The church is very peaceful and welcoming.

Church on the outside is rather plain but inside has a very ornate altar and a number of frescoes in the main section of the church.
