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.

Let's say the facade is traditional and while it's lovely, nothing exceptional. But when you walk inside everything changes. The lighted apse pulls your eye immediately to the affrescos and their original colors. It would be easy to sit and admire them,studying them detail by...More

Small Romanesque church with a nice nave and two bell towers. It is a bit outside of Como, but worth a visit.

This church is a bit of a walk from the historic center of Como but worth it. Its over 1500 years old. Its in a Romanesque style but somewhat distinctive from the romanesque churches I had seen in Milan. There are well preserved frescoes inside.

We have visited here at night so couldn't enter inside. However, lighting of the Basilica was charming! We had limited time, so we didn't try to re-visit, but worth the walk.

The reviews I read sparked my interest but really this basilica is of only average interest- five or ten minutes wandering around it and we were heading off.

Wonderful Basilica, very peaceful with guide books in English giving a potted history. Seems to have been recently restored and was worth the 20 minute walk from the Duomo.

Don't miss to visit the cloister on the left of the church: you pass a little wooden door and you are there. Right now, it hosts the school of law of Insubria University and the access is free.

The Basilica di Sant'Abbonlio is situated away from the other tourist attractions but is well taking the time and making an effort to visit. Indeed , we were the only visitors at the time, unlike Como Duome where there were many tour groups.. The 14th...More
