The Basilica di San Nicolò

You can’t leave Lecco before visiting its most important Church: the Basilica di San Nicolò, patron saint of sailors and boatmen.

With its neoclassical facade and its wide parvis, the church is easy to reach by a double stone staircase. It now houses the deanery of  the Archdiocese of Milan. Its main peculiarity is definitely the 96 m tall bell tower also known as “the Matitone”, one of the highest in all Italy. You may also book a tour on this great belfry and enjoy a special view on the city itself!
