Description

An itinerary to discover small villages in Valsassina: alleys and narrow streets to walk along exploring three hamlets within in the municipality of Primaluna.

 

Gero is a small hamlet. The legend says that towards the end of 1700 it was submerged by a large landslide that killed most of the inhabitants. Barcone and Gero, once joined in one own community, used to be proper municipalities.

In Barcone to be seen is the church of Madonna delle Grazie located at the entrance of the village. On its facade it displays paintings dating ‘800 by Tagliaferri and frescoes and stuccos dating ‘400.

In Vimogno is the church dedicated to S. Anna and on its facade it also displays a painting by Tagliaferri. Another characteristic place is the Antica Osteria, where it’s possible to drink a glass of wine and still breathe the old days atmosphere.
