Oltrelario, just a few steps from Lake Como
Wonders to discover around Lake Como
Everyone knows Lake Como, but what about the territories surrounding it? Two areas in particular are wonderful: the Larian Triangle nestled between the two southern branches of the lake, and the Valle d'Intelvi, to the west, which separates the lake and Switzerland. These are lands of adventure on foot, by bike and on horseback exploring trails and forests, following the tracks of ancient smugglers and gendarmes, conquering mountain peaks and their incredible views. These are lands of art, history and culture preserved in the villages, in the Romanesque, Gothic and Rococo churches, in the mastery of the scagliola craftsmen, in the brushstrokes of artists such as Spreafico and Segantini. These are lands of the rural world, where you can forget city life and immerse yourself in a world of pastures, mills, nevere and cheese-making. This and much more is Oltrelario. Come and discover it!
