The old railway Menaggio-Porlezza: the path

  3 June 2015

The old railway line Menaggio-Porlezza: the path runs for about 12 km starting from Menaggio at the petrol station, in front of Grand Hotel Menaggio.

The railroad headed south, towards Griante then returned back (thanks to maneuver called regression) and continued northward.

The railway line was built on the slopes of Monte Crocetta, it is forwarded in Val Sanagra to climb up to Grandola e Uniti.

From here it went towards Porlezza along Lake Piano, crossing two bridges and coming up on the shores of Lake Lugano.

There was the terminus of Porlezza near the Navigazione landing stage.
