Villas in Lenno
If you're planning to stay on Como Lake, the town of Lenno is one of the destinations that you should take into consideration, perhaps in one of the beautiful villas in the area suggested by WeVillas. The primary attraction of the town is Villa del Balbianello, one of the most beautiful villas on Como Lake. Built on the orders of Cardinal Angelo Maria Durini in the end of VXIII century, the Villa stands on the tip of a promontory overlooking the lake, almost opposite Bellagio. The real masterpiece of this property is the panoramic terraced garden dominated by the elegant loggia with three arches which stands on the highest point of the headland. In the center of Lenno, there is the Church of S. Stefano which houses a crypt of the eleventh century, and pagans and early Christians' remains. Next to this church, you can admire the Baptistery of S. John. The two buildings are all that remain of an important consecrated area, once enclosed by a high wall, within which was also the cemetery. Finally, above the village of Lenno, on the slopes of Mount Ossino a little more than 300 meters above sea level, stands the medieval Abbazia dell'Acquafredda. It was built by the Cistercian monks of Morimondo in 1200, but retains few traces of the original building. The Lenno's promenade runs along one of the most beautiful bays of Lake Como and offers beautiful views. It 's perfect for a walk or a relaxing break in one of the bars or restaurants overlooking the lake.
