Colico

Colico, which is located at the northernmost tip of Lake Como where the Valtellina and the Valchiavenna meet, owes its importance to its strategic location as a natural crossroads. There are remains of an important military fortification. Also for strategic military reasons a second fort (Montecchio) was built here at the beginning of the Twentieth Century and was equipped with four heavy-artillery guns in rotating turrets. It is the only armed fortification still remaining in the entire arc of the Italian Alps.

The Abbey of Piona is situated in one of the most enchanting points on the lake, overlooking the lovely little bay that takes the same name. Some of its buildings date back to the Eleventh Century and include an important Romanesque church with adjacent cloister. The Abbey is one of the most well-known tourist attractions of the Province of Lecco.

The scenery of the surrounding area is enchanting. Here the two rivers, the Adda and the Mera, flow into the Lake, the imposing Monte Legnone towers above the town and it is framed on the lake side by the Montecchi, undulating hills formed by glacial moraine, where hundreds of migratory birds from the nearby Pian di Spagna Nature Reserve find refuge.

Today Colico is an important industrial centre and is also developing rapidly in the tourism sector.
