Create an itinerary including Basilica di Sant'Abbondio
A Romanesque structure from the 11th century, Basilica di Sant'Abbondio features well-preserved frescoes inside its apse, and exquisite geometric relief details around the windows. The frescoes depict images from the life of Jesus--they were carefully restored to their medieval glory in the 1990s. A university operates within the former cloister--stroll its grounds to get a better look at the apse exterior.

  • One word for this Basilica... incredible! The Rev. Fr that walked us through the story of the basilica made it sound and look so lovely. I couldn't help but wonder how the love of God have greatly inspired the generation before us.
  • I did not expect to see such a treasure! The place not to miss during the visit to Como. If you arrive by train, you can visit it before going to city.
