A round trip between the lake and the mountain in beautiful Tremezzina, discovering a Romanesque jewel hidden in the forest . We start practically from the lake and walk along the chapels of Sacro Monte di Lenno to reach the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Soccorso, a Unesco heritage site.
The climb’ becomes steeper through meadows and pastures before entering a dense forest traversed by wet streams, we calmly reach the highest point of the route to admire a unique church, at least for its location.
