“The cathedral in Como is undoubtedly the most impressive building in the city and is renowned for its beautiful architecture. This church is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary and was constructed in the 14th century. It features a Gothic design and was not wholly completed until the 18th century. The front façade features a plethora of ornate stone work, stone statues and is topped with a series of small decorative towers. The interior is lavishly decorated and one of the main features is the central dome – this is covered with gold artwork and some simply beautiful decoration. Furthermore, the interior is vast and the various arches, columns and naves are all striking. When visiting Como, a visit must be given to this magnificent structure.”

“Especially in a sunny day this little square is a pearl of beauty with its Romanic-Baroque church. You can seat at Aida bar’s tables drinking an exquisite cappuccino in front of the façade.”

“The Basilica of Saint Addondio is located a little out of the city centre, but it is a majestic church that is worthy of a visit. The original church was created in the 11th century and the current Romanesque church was created over it by the Benedictines. The front of the church is quite plain and features simple stonework and a huge main doorway. Alternatively, the interior features a set of huge stone columns and an ornately decorated main altar. The altar has a beautiful series of coloured frescos depicting various religious figures and a gorgeous blue and gold decorative ceiling. ”

“I’m partisan but Como Cathedral (1396-1744) is stunning! It’s at the same time simple and majestic and it gives me an idea of purity and sober elegance. Located in downtown heart, easy to reach by walk. Unmissable. ”
