Sunday, November 14 at 08:45 in Cernobbio is organizing the event "Excursion: overlooking the lake from Cernobbio to Laglio".
The mountains of the Lario are traditionally rich in building materials, fossils and various minerals that have been used by man for thousands of years to create his works. A little north of Como, on the steep slopes of Mount Bisbino, emerge the quarries of Moltrasio Limestone, a tenacious but easily workable rock arranged in regular layers that facilitate processing. Used in abundance since Roman times, with the limestone of Moltrasio were built all the buildings of Como and the lake at least until the Second World War.
A paved path overlooking the lake, the Sentèe di Sort, connects the quarries with the hamlet of Casarico in the village of Moltrasio and will allow us to enjoy a fantastic view of the lake and explore what remains of these extraordinary works of human ingenuity, used until a few decades ago. We will then continue to Laglio on the Via Verde, from here on quiet walk between stone villages, shrines and cobbled streets, always with the lake to accompany and cheer the path. Our route will end right in front of Villa Oleandra where who knows, maybe, we will find the beautiful George to welcome us.
