Basilica San Fedele
San Fedele Basilica in the city of Como
The Basilica is located dowtown, in Piazza San Fedele that used to be the main square for the cornmarket in Como. The Basilica was probably built in 1120 on the ruins of a previous building. The construction was finished years later. Along the centuries the building was largely modified. In the 17th century the main nave changed into a barrel vault ceiling and side apsides were modified in the 16th century when some arcs were closed and replaced with paintings and stuccos. In 1805 the octagonal lantern was moved up. Between 1807 and 1808 the side chapels were built. Also, the church was restored in the beginning of the 21st century, especially the façade and the tower bell. Some people define this as a Neoromanesque church. It id definitely worth to visit it inside too, to admire the many frescoes and sacred art pieces.
