June 2017     Map of walk         4.9 miles       Lenno to Argengno

The Greenway‘ is a trail down part of the west side of Lake Como, which passes through Lenno, where we were staying. We walked south from Lenno along the trail to Colonno, then on to Argegno

We passed Villa del Balbiano

14th century bell tower of Church of Santa Maria Maddalena, Ossuccio

Isola Comacina

The village in the gap is where we are going

Church of Santi Giacomo e Filippo, Ossuccio, dates from the 12th century and has very old frescoes

Sala Comacina

Looking back to Lenno and the island

 

Colonno

At the end of The Greenway, we found a waterfall

Argegno

There is a cable car that goes from behind the church up to the top, where there is the village of Pigra

Under the porch of the church

In the church

Shame the view from the top of the cable car wasn’t clearer

 

Looking down on Lenno and our house

We walked around the old village of Pigra, at the top of the cable car

 

Back down in Argegno

We took a boat back to Lenno, which called at the village opposite Lenno
