From Damaso the journey continues onto the other shore towards Colico, important communications center since antiquity due to the roads coming from Lecco, Chiavenna and Sondrio.
Precisely for this strategic position suffered invasions and devastations which, coupled with the frequent flooding caused by the Adda, provoked an almost complete decrease in population at the end of the 17th century.
The reason for its come back was the reopening of the passege of the Stelvio, of the Maloja and of the Spulga. The landscape is of particular interest, with the characteristic construction in schistose stone and, to the north of Colico, the rains of the Forte di Fuentes, star-shaped defensive bulwark, completed by the Spanish governor of the same name and demolished by Napoleon at the end of the 18th century.
To the south of Colico meriting a stop, Abbazzia (Abbey) di Piona, with its beautiful view over the Lake. It is one of the major complexes of interest for the typical Romanesque style of the Como tradition.
Founded on the summit of the peninsula in the 13th century by the Benedictine monks of Cluny, after a period of decline the construction was restored at the beginning of the '900, and from the 1937 belongs to the Cistercians of the Cosamari Abbey (Frosinone).
To visit also the Church of San Nicolao (12th cent.) rising on a pre-existing building, with the belfry, rebuilt in the 18th cent. after the fall of the original, and the enclosure of the middle of the 13th cent. (recently restored), where Romantic and Gothic elements are found, surrounded by a lovely four-sided arcade in white and black marble.
