Church of Saint Fedele

Of ancient origin (6th century) and rebuilt in the 11th century in Romanesque style, the church has a very unusual layout with a short central nave and side aisles, three apsidal conches laid out as a three-leaf clover and an ambulatory that, from the side aisles, continues ideally to embrace
the apses.

Inside it is possible to admire traces of the ancient decorations, including a 13th century fresco of the Blessed Virgin Mary in a mandorla.

The church is located in the square San Fedele, one of the most charming parts of Como. Until the 19th century it was where the town’s food market was held and is now a popular meeting place. What stands out here are some 15th and 16th century Renaissance houses with an exposed wood cantilever
structure filled in with terracotta bricks laid out in a herringbone pattern.
