Monuments Como

Como, with noble palaces, elegant architecture and monuments, is an ideal destination for cultural tourism

Monuments Como. Palaces of the nobility, elegant architecture and unique landmarks, including a few of the most renowned monuments in Lombardy, is what makes of this territory the ideal destination for cultural tourism.

Como counts with attractions such as the historic center, the Cathedral and the Broletto, the former headquarters of the Municipality.

Furthermore, the churches of Sant' Abbondio and San Fedele are a long-standing reminder of a glorious medieval past. Consider visiting monuments in Como that stand as examples of Italian Rationalism, like the Casa del Fascio, which was designed by Giuseppe Terragni alongside the Novocomum. 

If you go across Piazza Cavour you will find the Volta Temple, museum dedicated to the inventor of batteries. You will probably stumble upon various monuments in Como by walking through downtown. Don't miss the chance to see its watchtowers, the one in Porta Vittoria is particularly popular with visitors.

Neighboring towns are perfect for a holiday by the lakeshore admiring less-known monuments in Lombardy. Discover awe-inspiring landscapes and aristocratic mansions that provide an inviting atmosphere.

Tourism in Como may take you to Villa Olmo and Carlotta, Serbelloni and Balbaniello to enjoy their lush, evocative scenery.
