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.

A real highlight of Como City, with the absolutely stunning Lake Como just down the road. Definitely a landmark to visit

While beautiful and full of writings about the history of it, this cathedral feels like it has sold out to tourism and is missing an authentic flare that you find at many others.

Basilica di Sant’Abbondio Is worth the walk just outside the city walls for an alternative spiritual experience away from the Duomo crowds and like us you may have the whole place to yourselves at certain times of the day.

The adjoining Cloisters and courtyard is worth a wander.

We came to the lake and stayed from a few days in bellagio, which is beautiful. We flew from Malpensa airport so came in the train changing at Sarenna. Did the same on the way back and spent half a day wandering round Como which is also beautiful. Despite what it says on line there is baggage storage in Como. It opens at 10. We got the directions from tourist information and it was about 5 minutes walk from the lake ferry

I had a devil of a time finding this place. GPS wasn't very helpful. But, once there, there's the convenience of a confessional where you can get absolution for all the "bad words" you said trying to find it!

It's a very old church of simple design. As a heathen/infidel etc., I don't place much on what motivated the building of these places. But I do wonder at how it was done at the time it was. Amazing! AND THEY'RE STILL STANDING!

The Basilica di Sant'Abbonlio is situated away from the other tourist attractions but is well taking the time and making an effort to visit. Indeed , we were the only visitors at the time, unlike Como Duome where there were many tour groups..

The 14th century frescoes are well worth seeing.

Make that extra effort to visit!

Even though i stayed in como for 5 months i went to this church only in the last week. This church even though a bit far from the lake is well worth a visit . The atmosphere inside is amazing. I was one of the only 3 people inside the church at that time though and i can imagine the como cathedral having a lot more visitors. Such a beautiful church :) i just wanted to sit there for a long time !
