The beautiful scenery, mild climate and the quaint village characterized by archades, are only a few of the many peculiar aspects this town offers. By the lake shore you can find the parish church of S. Lorenzo and Villa Carlotta. The latter is one of the most visited destinations of Lake Como, owned by the Italian state.
This building, preceded by a formal Italian garden, is surrounded by an immense and luxuriant English park, full of exotic plants.
Inside the villa, famous for its elegant architecture, you can admire works of art by famous artists as Appiani, Hayez, London and Thorvaldsen.
