The façade is elaborate and refined at the same time, while the back is embellished with a dome with a very peculiar shape. Inside there are beautiful tapestries, while the ceiling gives the feeling of human smallness in the face of the architectural greatness of the church. The Cathedral of Como must be visited absolutely if you are in the city.
A typical Italian cathedral with all its grandiosity and beautiful works of art. Close to the castle and other central attractions in this medieval city. You can enjoy the re-enactments and procession in the evening at the main square.
Main cathedral of the Como city It is ancient and interesting to visit. The green roof and the statues complete the image of the groomy medieval building. Imagine how mighty it looked for the citizens couple of hundreds years ago!
