  • It's a bit of a struggle to get there, but it's worth thinking about. It shows on the lake and in the mountains.

  • The church of Santa Maria is located 661 m on the edge of an ancient communication route that connected Mandello to Valsassina. Its existence is documented as early as 1145 and in 1335 it was the hospice of the Benedictines, with local annexes also built in medieval times. From 1440 it depends on the parish of Olcio; renovated in 1600, it retains a beautiful Romanesque bell tower. Seriously damaged by a disastrous fire in 1997, Santa Maria was soon lovingly restored. The ascent to the church is within everyone's reach and the same can be considered as a destination for end to itself for half-day excursions. There is a refreshment at the church. There are many opportunities for reflection and celebration throughout the year.
