MONTE LEGNONE

MONTE LEGNONE THE PYRAMID OF COMO LAKE

 

Enjoy a breath-taking view over Lake Como.

Monte Legnone is the highest peak in the area. Its pyramid-like shape can be easily recognized, located at the end of the north side of Lake Como, between Valtellina, Valvarrone and Valsassina.

Apparently quite rugged at its summit, but it’s still one of the most visited peaks in the area, particularly along the track starting from Roccoli Lorla, it offers a spectacular view of the Central and Western Alpine Chain and on the Pre-Alps of Lecco.

From its peak there are different crests going down to the neighbouring valleys and towards the lake; on the east side it is easy to recognize the military paths of the Cadorna Line dating back to the WWI connecting Pagnona (Valvarrone) and Delebio (Valtellina).
