  • Nice walk. It starts from Civate and climbs up a trail quite challenging (for the slope). After about an hour we arrive to the Abbey from which one can enjoy a beautiful view. On the way back, if you want to reward you for the hike, I recommend a stop at the Crotto del goatherd, where you can enjoy delicious cakes.

  • A place of great beauty, history, architecture, art, faith. Abbey dating back to at least the 9th century, but possibly even older, with many original frescos of the 11th century. Maintenance and promotion are guaranteed by the volunteers of the friends of St. Peter, who also sponsored archaeological research and restoration. Is approximately 1 hour's walk from the hamlet of Pozzo, Civate (LC). Nice view on the underlying Lake Annone and mountain views of the Resegone.

  • The Romanesque Basilica of San Pietro al Monte is located 650 metres high. It can be reached with a walk of an hour (to them) I've been practicing walking on steep trails of mountain and are no longer very young it took twice as much. On the trail you will encounter lots of people doing some nice walks. The trail is not particularly bad but I recommend some good walking shoes. Beyond this is a magnificent place. The basilica contains beautiful frescoes and stucco reliefs. I was lucky enough to be able to visit the crypt not always open which is one of the masterpieces of Romanesque art. The volunteers who work there are really very kind. When I went I had the opportunity to enjoy the explanation of one of these volunteers who give very meaningful explanations on the complex.

  • Romanic painted church nested in a beautiful moutain landscape. One of the most charming places I know, when not crowdy.
  • Fabulous but know that to reach it it's a serious walk that can be slippery.
  • I often stay in San Pietro al monte, I fell in love with the quiet of this place. The shortest way to get there is to arrive in civate and Park in the lot reported in places well. From there c is a sign that takes you on the path, you have to go to a bed and breakfast and then follow the trail to mount cornizzolo 10. The road is a Bridleway and is quite steep and tiring if you haven't used all physical activity. The sneakers in case of good weather are more than enough for both you and your children (in heavy winter socks for everyone though). The duration of the ascent varies, at a leisurely pace even a hour, quick step in 30 minutes you've come. Along the way we find the casote di civate with related explanations. Once in San Pietro you can enjoy a beautiful panoramic view over the Lakes you Oggiono and Pusiano, and mount Resegone that dazzles with its White crests in both winter and summer. Recommended as undemanding outing and to change a bit from air pollution. Thing to note, in the silence of the forest you will also hear the traffic noise in the distance, this can be a good food for thought for everyone.

  • Reached by multiple paths, the most popular is the one that starts from the village of Civate. Attention: Saturday and Sunday no major problems of parking and Park in ban is deprecated (and uncivil) because traffic wardens often pass. ... Past the village pit and the Crotto del goatherd, the road becomes a path that climbs then quite steeply toward the Basilica.

  • If you want to spend a day in total relax this is the place to be. After leaving the car in Civate (near the school). We walked up to the destination Well, following the signs to the Abbey. The course is uphill but not difficult. When you reach the Woods begin a series of steps (be careful because they are slippery). After a total 45-60 minute walk you will reach the Abbey very cute and charming (volunteers make a guided tour and narrate the birth and details of the Abbey ... I must say that it is interesting then I recommend it). The scenery is spectacular, so bring a sandwich, a book or a spotting scope and a stuia, take your little patch of lawn and enjoy the nature. Recommended.
