very surprising antique church, with many worthy details, frescoes, sculptures, architectural elements, and original qualities. Worth a visit by all means.

The church itself, despite its history, would only rate a 3 star review from me. I found it dark and frankly not that interesting, with one exception. There was a depiction of purgatory that was the only one I can ever recall seeing in a...More

This church is in the old town of Como and is built in the 12th century. Although smaller and older than Duomo, it is definitely worth visiting when in Como.

The church of San Fedele is smaller, but much older than the later Duomo. It has a different kind of elegance, including more interesting floors, and other features that you do not see in later churches. The unique inferno sculpture is always startling to see.

It is a gem in the middle of the city. My wife and I frequented the square twice on our visit. You will also be pleased with the affordable wine bars nearby.

This old church is worth stopping in and just sitting to enjoy its ancient surrounds. It is an unusual shape which makes it more interesting than a standard church. The atmosphere is very peaceful. A great place for some time-out.

My wife and me always when we are visiting old towns go to old churches to see beatiful building and decorations, but especially have silent moments. San Fedele is a beatiful church in the old town.

Stumbled on this church while walking around Como. A beautiful space. Several altars , a lovely painted dome, an interesting ceramic depiction of hell or purgatrory and an ossuary! The church still hold services.
