Val Sanagra

Val Sanagra Park

  8 June 2017

Just above Menaggio lies the Val Sanagra Park, a large area rich with flora and fauna where lots of walks can be done. From Menaggio take the road to Lugano, then, after three bends, take the first right to Loveno. After 500m turn left direction Centro Sportivo, Villa Vigoni. At the church of Loveno turn left and after 300m you can reach Piamuro where you can park the car.

An easy walk, ideal with children, is the one along the river Sanagra. The walk takes about 40 minutes and is quite flat. From Piamuro follow the trail in the direction of Mulino della Valle. Don’t cross the bridge, but follow the path on the right side of the river, past the ancient brick-furnace Galli, to La Chioderia, a trout farm with a typical inn. Apart from the trout that swim around in their basins many other animals live at the farm such as donkeys, sheep, geese, goats and chicken.
