This is the oldest church in Como and the condition of its fabric is very impressive. Much of the external decoratuive carving is 11th C and looks now as if it was done last year. The church is very peaceful and welcoming.

being a major witness to romanesque architecture in Northern Italy; the exterior is beautifully decorated, the austere interior spatially impressive, but for us (because of momentary form?) the gothic frescoes in the apse (by no means outstanding works) held particular interest.

We arrived on the celebration day of Saint Abbondio which was a surprise. It may not be the most extravagant church but it was peaceful and a quiet place for contemplation. Take time out to reflect on your journey away from all the tourists.

Church on the outside is rather plain but inside has a very ornate altar and a number of frescoes in the main section of the church.

This church is located in an unattractive part of the city. There is free parking close by which is unusual for Como. The church has nice features and is worth a visit, try to avoid the occasional coach party.

The by far most attractive ecclesiastical building for me in Como is the Basilica of St. Abbondio, about half a mile from the city center in a rather unattractive industrial area. But a visit here is definitely worthwhile. Unlike so many churches in Europe, which...More

Basilica dedicated to San Abbondio, a little bit in the background of the center, nice roman stone construction, simple outside, inside very nice fresques; nearby is a university nested in a monastery what you can also visit if you have time.
