The village of Ossuccio, which is part of the town of Tremezzina, is located in the “Zoca de l’Oli”, a quiet inlet opposite Comacina island. The inlet is called “de l’Oli”, a dialectal term meaning “oil”, because its waters are really calm and still. The temperate climate that this area of Lake Como benefits from fosters the growth of typical Mediterranean vegetation, especially characterised by the presence of many olive trees.
One of the village’s main features is its rich historical, artistic and archaeologic heritage.
Worth a visit: Comacina island and the Antiquarium museum, the parish church of Santi Eufemia and Vincenzo, the church of Santa Maria Maddalena, the church of Santi Giacomo e Filippo, the church of Santi Agata e Sisinnio, the Sacred Mountain of Ossuccio, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Abbey of San Benedetto in Val Perlana and the historical hamlet of Spurano.
