This cathedral is beautiful and in the centre of town with cute little side streets, that were full of cafes and shops. definitely worth a visit.

The Cathedral of Como, called the Duomo of Como, is a great church. At its side there is also the "Broletto" a covered place where the market was held, now used for various events.

The Duomo was beautiful from both outside and inside . There were no queues and as it is a place of worship no entrance fees either The organ is worth seeing - probably one of the larger ones with numerous pipes

This is very interetsing to view from the outside and the inside. I found the back of the church far more interesting than the front of the church.

I am not a particularly religious person but have been inside quite a number of cathedrals over the years. Como's compares favourably with the best. A must visit to a wonderful building (even if you have no confession to make!)

When traveling to Como you think of the lake, shops and homes- but church is a must see- it's open even though it looks closed- the building and decoration are again beautiful

We did not choose to go inside the Cathedral but enjoyed the amazing views from a boat ride (also rated) around Lake Como. Beautiful!
