On the eastern shores of Lake Como Mandello is a lovely place with a strong industrial vocation.
Mandello del Lario is an enchanting town mirroring in Lake Como. Its origins go back to Romans, even if it reaches its peak in the Middle Ages, whose traces are nowadays still visible in the compact architectural housing center with porch style houses, among which you can clearly see an ancient Roman tower called Torre of Pretorio. In the modern part of the town, many liberty stile villas remind us Mandello is a well-know touristic location since the beginning of 1900.
On the hill, along the wayfarer path (sentiero del viandante) you find the church of St. George, hosting precious frescoes dated back to fifteenth century.
Mandello is not only lake, in fact its name is strictly linked to its industrial fields and companies, among this the historical Moto Guzzi whose technical and sport successes made the broad-winged eagle worldwide famous.
Don’t miss to visit Mandello, you can walk along the lake promenade and enjoy relax at the park mirroring in the lake. We are sure Mandello will surprise you.
