From the outside this is a very beautiful building, easily the most attractive in Como. It's in the middle of a square and there's lot to do nearby, with some nice shops and places to eat. When I went inside it was pleasant enough but, having just visited the cathedral in Milan, this was a little underwhelming in comparison.

From outside this Cathedral looked amazing with church bells chiming every 15/30 minutes. Was very disappointing inside and quite small. Only a couple of stained glass windows and not much else.

Magnificent Gothic cathedral. Some beautiful tapestries and paintings inside. Religious services are still held there. Worth a visit.

Great historical building, recently restaurantes externally, it looks amazing. There is a small fee to see the cathedral inside but worth your cash.

It delightfully dominates the square, still all other buildings around are beautifully emphasized. Fantasticly conservated. The statuesof the two Pliny (on both side of the main gate) are rarities!

As is the case with so many small towns or cities in Italy, this is a beautiful cathedral...more so from the outside (at least I think) than the inside. The facade really is gorgeous. That said, if you happen to visit at the end of one of the Masses when one of the ambitious and talented organists is playing, you... More
