A very beautiful church inside and out. The church is a unique mix of 5 architectures. The people of Como remember their Roman roots by having 2 Roman governors on each side of the door in the facade facing the square. The outside marble does not absorb pollution so it looks new or refreshed. The inside has many carpet hangings and beautiful ceiling details. It is free to go inside and have a long look at all the features
Amazing roof. Very nice courtyard. Built during romain era. Everything is in excellent condition. Entrance is free (+ offering) If you like visiting churches or if you like religious relics, add this destination to your favourites
