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!

In the typical architecture from the North of Italy, the Duomo stands in a tiny Piazza or square, where it seems encastrated because of its huge size. The exterior is really nice, in white marble. The interior is súper dark and sad.

Its really big, you can go inside and see all the religious art if its what you like, its just in the center of the city so you have a lot of restaurants nerby.
