Stunning church in Como, the size will amaze you. Very worthwhile visit. Beautiful surrounds. Incredible to think that this church was built to these proportions for the size of the community

Although much smaller than Milan's Duomo, this one is equally as beautiful (and free to enter). Went there in mid January while a layer of snow was everywhere. Really a memorable sight and the place to see when in Como.

It was amazing with all the lights show on the church and other buildings around. Even it was no snow but we could get the feeling as it was very cold. We went there before Christmas and all the decoration was very beautiful.
