This is a lovely cathedral in Como. One has to wonder how come there is such a huge cathedral for such a tiny town. The facade of the cathedral is beautiful, and from several angles in the square - the entire facade looks almost 2-dimensional, which is a nice illusion. The interiors are lovely as well, with a very high... More

The facade is beautiful, inside wall carpets not what I expected. The building next to it, Broletto, was more of interest to me.

The Duomo sits in the main square of Como, just a few steps from the Lake's edge. Well worth a visit, the art and architecture will amaze you.

The cathedral is in a beautiful gothic/baroque style and has lovely stained glass windows and statues of several saints. Outside in the square are many restaurants and cafes if you want to sit down for a meal or coffee. Souvenir shops can be found outside, too.

It is a pity that the square in front of this duomom is small since if it was not you can appreciate more the beauty of this building from all sides of perspective. However, despite all of this it is a must see location once you arrive at Como.

We are even more enchanted by the light show design on the cathedral, its surroundings be part of the Christmas spirit and the night market full of... More

We were so lucky to be around the cathedral when what seemed to be a 1000-people choir performed. It was the Italian National Gospel choir. What a magical experience. Gave me goose bumps. The weather was fantastic. Quiet hot. We did not go inside as the queues were insane but had a great time admiring the wonder that is the... More
