History, art, landscapes and exhibitions

The village of Corenno Plinio is one of the most characteristic corners of Lake Como, a place where you can still experience a strong historical suggestion and imagine the events of the lake during the Middle Ages. The village is of medieval origin and develops around the cobbled square, where the castle and the church stand with the tomb arches of the counts nestled on the promontory that descends towards the lake. Walking along the staircases carved into the rock and venturing into the alleys of the village you will discover villas, ancient portals and glimpses, that will make you take a step back in time, until you reach the ancient pier where you can admire a charming view on Lake Como.
