  Basilica di San Fedele and Saturday Market
by starship
 
 

One of the two most recognizable buildings in Como, the Basilica di San Fedele, is located in the center of the old, walled city. The Romanesque-style church is situated on the former sight dedicated to Santa Eufemia, but was renamed San Fedele when the remains of the martyr were buried there.

Behind the basilica on the Piazza Medagalie d'Oro is the Palazzo Giovio that is today the home of the Archaelogical Museum of Como.

A street market was being held in the piazza in front of basilica on the Saturday I was there with the towns people selling crafts and other small souvenirs. Unfortunately, the lack of time prevented me from taking a long look at all the offerings.
