Castello Vezio

The ancient fortress Vezio was erected supposedly in 1100, it is located on the eastern shore of Lake Como, above the city of Varenna. Now only the wall and the observation tower remain from the original citadel.

I advise everyone to visit this fortress because of the magnificent panorama that opens onto the lake.

In the fortress there is an association of falconry. You can often see a falconer dressed in an old costume, and at certain hours watch the flights of birds.
