Interesting historic place
Dec 2019 • Solo
Visited this place when I took a tour to Como. This building is attached to the Como cathedral, & was the city town hall in the past. It is opened on 2 sides & has nice arches along those sides. Inside there were infoboards about its interesting history. Worth a visit if you are in Como. Reading the infoboards while being at the exact location brings the history back to life.

Archways

It’s neat to be so close to history and imagine the way life was hundreds of years ago with merchants and shoppers milling about the area. Walking under the arches and touching the old columns is a step back in time. Not easy for people with mobility issues.

Another beauty!

I initially thought this was a church due to the front of the building. However, it was the town hall in the past and now hosts art exhibitions and other events. It's right next to the Duomo.

Another gem in the Como's city
Apr 2018
Beautiful building where the city council of the city was gathered from the Middle Ages. It is attached to the cathedral of the city. Beautifully illuminated is like a gem of the main square.

an old Lombardian meeting hall
Aug 2017 • Solo
A 'Broletto' is a medieval meeting hall of Lombardian cities. It can be encountered in various places of that province, but maybe the most famous till now is the 'Broletto' of the city of Como. A rectangular building with arches, open to all sides and attached to the northern side of the Duomo, the city's cathedral.

It is an attractive multicolor construction with different kind of stones and there are several information boards, also in English, telling about the history of this fascinating secular building. From under its arches there are beautiful views towards the Piazza del Duomo in front.

A magnificent medieval complex with stunning marble arches. It was built in the XIII century as a municipal building. The building is now used as a public exhibition hall and town hall events.

Don't overlook this important early structure next to the larger Duomo.
Sep 2017 • Friends
The Broletto was the original church before the Duomo, and it was crudely cut off to make room for the new, more important Duomo, and left as a storage facility for may years. Now appreciated for both the historical significance and natural beauty, the upper floor has been restored and prepared as exhibition space, and the bottom floor is an appropriate space for the city tourist office.

Como at its best

The Cathedral place is one of the most attractive places in Como: Beside the Cathedral (Duomo) you can find the Broletto, a fine building with arcades ...

Lovely arches.
Jan 2016 • Couples
The Broletto is located just next to the cathedral.
It dates back to medieval times, when it was used as the municipality of Como.
Its most striking feature are the ancient arches, which have been lovingly restored to their original look, from several centuries ago.
