Vezio Castle

  6 June 2017

Located above Varenna, Vezio Castle is an ancient military outpost of medieval origin built for the will of the Longobard Queen Theodolinda.

The castle was connected to the village of Varenna by two long walls that protected the country and its inhabitants from frequent wars and looting.
Partially restored in the twentieth century, today Vezio Castle is a place rich in history, art, nature and culture of the territory. You can visit the gardens, the underground, the walls and go to the tower where you can admire a wonderful view over Lake Como. The castle also houses a breeding of birds of prey which can be admired during one of the daily falconry demonstrations.
