Castello di Vezio

Castello di Vezio Lago di Como

Castello di Vezio … In the center of Lake Como, in the village of Perledo … on the promontory overlooking Varenna, stands Vezio Castle, an ancient military outpost of low medieval origin, partially restored in the mid-twentieth century, surrounded by greenery and olive groves.

Located in a militarily and commercially strategic place from which dominates the entire center of Lake Como and for this inhabited since the Iron Age, the Castle was associated in the past with the village of Varenna and connected to it by two long arms of walls that encircled it to the lake.

Underground, partly visited, statues scattered in the garden, the “ghosts” and the raptors, the castle blends in a unique natural beauty environment, with art, history and culture of the area.

The Castle can be visited from March to November.
