Started in the late 14C, completed in the Renaissance and crowned with an 18C dome by Juvarra, the Como Cathedral has a remarkable façade decorated with exceptional technical skill by the Rodari brothers who also decorated the North Portal, called "the frog's portal". The solemn Gothic interior is decorated in the Renaissance style : tapestries, paintings by Bernardino Luini and Gaudenzio Ferrari, and a moving Deposition, sculpted by Tommaso Rodari.
