Official site

Just above the town Menaggio lies the splendid  Val Sanagra Park.This magnificent valley, set in the heart of the Lepontine alps, lies in between 300 m and 2000 m altitude. It features the presence of rare botanical species some of which are endemic to the area. In addition the Val Sanagra contains some of the oldest rock formations in Italy and some go way back to the mid-Carboniferous period.

A mosaic of woods, meadows and pastures, a valley formed by the river Sanagra and modelled  during the last Ice Age. The contained urbanization, the wild environment, the presence of rare or endemic species of plants, combined with a special microclimate, make this area one of the most interesting areas in the Como area.

In the Park there are many trails to discover. For example from Menaggio you can reach Piumuro, one of the entrances to the Park, and walk along the river to Sass Corbée. Or you can walk from Menaggio to the Rogolone, an enormous oak tree, symbol of the Val Sanagra Park

At La Villa Camozzi at Codogna is the Ethnographic and Natural Museum Val Sanagra with rooms dedicated to the flora, fauna and fossils of the Park. Part of the museum is dedicated to the old railway Menaggio - Porlezza; for information www.museovalsanagra.it or tel. 0344 32115.

Along the river, close to Molino Vecchia Chioderia, you can visit the furnace Galli where bricks and roof tiles were made.
