The cathedral is the result of more than four centuries of working; the construction began in 1396 on the ancient Romanesque basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore. Looking carefully at the structure it is easy to recognize the different styles: from the marble gothic facade to the dome dated 1740, the year in which the church was finished. Many artists worked in the church like architect Lorenzo degli Spazzi, Pietro da Breggia, Florio da Bonta, Luchino Scarabota, Amuzio da Lugano, Tommaso Rodari da Maroggia, Cristoforo Solari and Rodari.
The complete realization of the facade took more than fifty years: it began in 1447 and finished in 1498. The great portal is placed side by side from two aedicules with the statues of Plinio il Vecchio and Plinio il Giovane: the famous men of letters and civil employees of the roman empire, born in the first century a.d. in Como, have been placed in an honour position, although they were pagan. The tow lateral doors, the latin cross shape and rich comples artistic works are worth observing.
