A stream separates Lenno from Ossuccio and we were staying near by. A church was built on the mountainside in 1532, and 14 chapels were built on the way to it between 1635 and 1710. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We could see it from our balcony, so had to walk up there

We passed this old church on the way

One of the 14 chapels

Inside the chapels are frescoes and life-sized statues depicting biblical scenes

At the top is a baroque church

and the views are wonderful

Looking northeast to Bellagio on the point

The Lenno peninsula (we will walk to the the end of the peninsula later)

Looking south-west
