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.

being a major witness to romanesque architecture in Northern Italy; the exterior is beautifully decorated, the austere interior spatially impressive, but for us (because of momentary form?) the gothic frescoes in the apse (by no means outstanding works) held particular interest.

We arrived on the celebration day of Saint Abbondio which was a surprise. It may not be the most extravagant church but it was peaceful and a quiet place for contemplation. Take time out to reflect on your journey away from all the tourists.

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.
