Como is beautiful place. The cathedral, as all Italian churches is beautiful inside and out. It is located in a beautiful square where you can have good italian coffee and enjoy the view.

If one is in Como, one cannot miss this beautiful cathedral. It is ancient, and Mass there ( in Italiano of course) is serene and awe-inspiring.

be sure to have your "donation" of 1€. there was a gatekeeper when we went! spectacular views once inside. was it worth it? once you've seen St. peter's basilica in Rome and the Duomo in Florence and Milan; all others come in 2nd place

The length of construction of this lovely cathedral was such that it blends gothic with renaissance seamlessly in a lovely cathedral that dominates the north-east corner of the city. a guide helps in revealling the cathedrals many joys.
