What to visit in the surroundings of Cannobio

Outside the streets of the old town there is a world to discover, from the beautiful and ancient Cannobina Valley, rich in traditions and culture with more than 250 km of trails that offer the possibility of hiking or mountain biking. A beautiful route called the “Borromea” connects and crosses all the municipalities in the valley, from the medieval village of Carmine Superiore with a wonderful view of the lake, to the small, ancient hamlets of Ronco, Socragno, S. Agata, known as the balcony on the lake, and S. Bartolomeo, from which you can admire a wonderful view of the lake.
A few kilometres from Cannobio, precisely in Traffiume, there is a suggestive landscape that can be admired by following the river, characterised by the erosive action of the waters of the torrents that for millennia have contributed to modelling the rock.
From the so-called balcony on the lake, S.Agata, we find the path that leads to the imposing Mount Giove, a demanding but suggestive path that offers, once reached the top, a wonderful lake view.
The village of Gurro, which dates back to the second century A.D. and is proud of its Scottish origins, is situated in a green valley, characterised by stone houses with stone roofs and narrow streets. With its two museums, the Ethnographic Museum and the Geological Museum, it is well worth a visit.
