Legnoncino peak hike
Mountain Legnoncino, seen from the terrace of the Villa al Castello vacation domicile, is a fantastic spot on Lake Como, easily accessible to all with a simple hike. To get to the start of the hike by car requires some stamina and good nerves.

Experienced hikers could also climb to the top of Mount Legnone, the highest elevation around the lake.

Regardless of spiritual persuasion, the trail to the Santuario Madonna Del Soccorso is fantastic and uncrowded. The 14 chapels on the way to the church (part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site) impress with life-size depictions of moments in the life of Christ. It’s the surroundings, the views, the history and the tranquility that inspire. It’s a steep but easy walk. You can also walk further in the direction of Preda. There is the Romanesque abbey of San Benedetto.
