Como offers many attractions. In addition to the various museums and monuments, several events are organised during the year. In the ancient city centre, a pedestrian area surrounded by roman walls, is the Duomo and the Broletto, a building with a gothic façade used nowadays for exhibitions and public events. Characteristic are the buildings of the famous architect Giuseppe Terragni, the “Casa del Fascio” and the “Novocomum”. Walking in the lake-front city park you can reach the “Tempio Voltiano”, where the Museum of Alessandro Volta, inventor of the battery, is located. Also dedicated to the scientist is a lighthouse in Brunate, reachable by funicular.
