  • 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.
  • Ancient Benedictine monastery. Very nice place overlooking the Lake. Walk not difficult but for the little sports could be challenging. Enough comfortable shoes with soles not too smooth. history of the monastery and interesting medieval frescos. Return for lunch, stop by the Crotto del Goatherd. Deserves. Money and courtesy.

  • With a walk of about 1 hour from Civate you arrive at this beautiful Basilica dates from the 11th century beautifully preserved. A place of faith, art, culture and natural, in fact the view of the mountains and the surrounding plain is impressive. The basilica is managed by a group of volunteers that keep open on Sundays from 10 to 12 and from 13.30 to 16.00. On other days you can book visits.

  • Lovely place. A beautiful and easy to walk in the middle of nature with a smashing finale. The Abbey is simply amazing. A gorgeous example of Lombard Romanesque. Council to ensure that it is open before you go because the inside is gorgeous and the crypt truly superb.
