There is on the banks of the Larian Triangle a more hidden, less crowded “wayfarer’s path” to be discovered slowly.Its name is STRADA REGIA
This hike gives us a very pleasant taste of it. And more will follow on this ancient path
We begin the journey with views of the splendid churches of Pognana Lario, home of a mouth-watering August gnocchi festival and very recently a residence on the lake of the “Ferragnez.” On the other shore in view is handsome Clooney’s Villa Oleandra.
But let’s not be distracted by these mundanities, we go up the mule track that until 1917 was the only passable way and arrive at Palanzo where we discover with wonder a press from the 1500s still working ! Built on site with a huge chestnut tree trunk…. actually there are two presses, but we will tell this on the spot. We then walk through the village with the remains of a tower, the wash house, the discrete little church of Soldo with a new view of the Lario.
Then we proceed through woods and pastures to discover an avello boulder ( do you know what that is?) in the nearby Lemna. So much richness in this route and how much remains to be discovered on the ROAD REGIA. But don’t worry, stage by stage, we will travel it all.
