South of Lecco the Adda river enlarges and creates lake Garlate. Along the evocative cycle-path you meet the Abegg Silk Museum and breathe nature.
The Adda river enlarges its riverbed south of Lecco and becomes the lake Garlate until it reaches the dyke of Olginate.
It’s really evocative to get to Garlate along the lakes pedestrian-cycle path, both coming from Lecco and from Olginate or Calolziocorte. Along this path you meet the Abegg Silk Museum which deserves a visit. Just in front you can see the Municipality Palace, former private residence of Abegg’s family.
Going on walking from the Abegg Palace you reach Garlate old town, characterized by its courtyards that welcomes visitors during yearly celebrated Festa delle Corti at the first week-end of September.
