LENNO

Port
Via Lungolago
45° 58' 27.33” N - 9° 11' 59.04” E

Lenno does not lay, like other lake villages, along the shores but is almost hidden in a deep inlet placed between the Lavedo promontory and tip of Portezza. At its back, on the slopes of the mountain, is the Santuario della Madonna del Soccorso with its 18th century bell-tower and panoramic view of the Lake. The Sanctuary may be reached by way of a processionary path made up of a boulevard paved with cobblestone steps and lined by 14 chapels (1635-1714) dedicated to the Mysteries of the Rosary. On the extreme tip of Lavedo peninsula it is possible to admire the complex of Villa del Balbianello built in the 18th century by Cardinal Durini who erected the Villa and the panoramic Loggia. There is also a church, a small picturesque wet-dock and a large park which is one of the most beautiful in the area.

POINT OF INTEREST
Villa del Balbianello: the complex of buildings that make up the villa with its garden, neither English nor Italian, is now property of the FAI (National Environmental Fund), that allows the visit of the public. It's amongst the most beautiful and romantic villas of the lake and has a privileged position right on the tip of the promontory.
Acquafredda Abbey: rises on the slopes of the mount overhanging Lenno.
