Sacri Monti of Piedmont and Lombardy
The city of Como is celebrated the world over. But it offers much more than just its famous lake. Como boasts many important examples of Medieval architecture and is a thriving manufacturing centre, its silk industry being particulary important. Its most outstanding architectural treasures are the Romanesque churches of S. Abbondio and S.Fedele, the cathedral, Tempio Voltiano (Volta temple), Villa Olmo and the Palazzo Volpi art gallery. With their archaeological and local history collections, the city's civic museums are also an essential stop in any tour of Como.
The city is an ideal base for visiting the other enchanting sites around the lake. The fish from the lake are the stars of Como's cookery. This is the place to taste the best shad anywhere (known locally as missoltitt) either soused or grilled.
