Let's discover Brianza
We can call Brianza the land of lakes, in fact in this area among Lecco, Como and the northern part of Milan we find the largest number of lakes in Lombardy, the so-called Lakes Briantei.
Brianza area has no specific political boundaries, but encompasses a geographic area that includes the provinces of Lecco, Como, Monza and Brianza. We can take as natural boundaries: the pre-Alpine valleys to the north, from Valle San Martino to the western valleys of the lariano triangle where the Lambro and Seveso rivers born, the Adda river to the east and canale Villoresi to the south .
Brianza is a very interesting land under several point of views: natural, historical, cultural, religious, food and wine.
