The Valsolda of Piccolo Mondo Antico: on the lake shore

  22 May 2017

Our journey to Valsolda of Piccolo Mondo Antico continues down from Castello on the cobblestones that reaches on the lake shore.

It immediately meets the Church of Loggio with its large churchyard and shortly afterwards the view opens on the Monte San Salvatore after Lugano and the mountains of Carona where all times the storms in Fogazzaro novel unleashed.

Once on the lake shore of lake Lugano just beyond the Casarico houses and the mouth of the stream Soldo, you get into a large porch and arrive in a small boat landing.

Is the district of “Mal’ari” magical place in times of good weather, but so called because of air turbulence and roaring waves slapping against the shore during storms.
Here the Fogazzaro novel begins with the boat that leads the guests to dinner at base of risotto with truffles in the villa of the marquise Maironi in Cressogno.

From here continue to reach Oria, the starting point of our trip in Valsolda.
