It is a gem in the middle of the city. My wife and I frequented the square twice on our visit. You will also be pleased with the affordable wine bars nearby.

This old church is worth stopping in and just sitting to enjoy its ancient surrounds. It is an unusual shape which makes it more interesting than a standard church. The atmosphere is very peaceful. A great place for some time-out.

My wife and me always when we are visiting old towns go to old churches to see beatiful building and decorations, but especially have silent moments. San Fedele is a beatiful church in the old town.

Stumbled on this church while walking around Como. A beautiful space. Several altars , a lovely painted dome, an interesting ceramic depiction of hell or purgatrory and an ossuary! The church still hold services.

We almost missed this church and were very glad we didn't. Inside are some mediaeval frescoes, a beautiful altar and a 17th century picture of the Blessed Virgin in gilded wood. Beautiful.
