Where
Fonteno (BG)

Anyone going up to Fonteno, the highest village on the "Hill", can only admire and be moved by the sublime panorama that can be enjoyed from up there, whether the lake is illuminated by the warm light of day or by the romantic evening light.

SIGHTSEEING ATTRACTIONS
Fonteno, with its unique architecture and narrow alleys, reflects the rural soul of the past. In the centre of the hamlet stands the parish church of Saints Faustino and Giovita; the present building, in Neo-Gothic style, was built in the second half of the 1800s where once stood a chapel already standing in 1500. The sixteenth-century oratory of San Rocco is also very valuable. It was founded, according to tradition, as ex voto for the escaped threat of epidemics. Very characteristic, with its structure in exposed stone blocks, is also the oratory dedicated to San Carlo in the small village of Xino. Its interior features works with a more ancient flavour, such as the eighteenth-century altar in polychrome marble, blended with contemporary expressions such as the sculptures of Alberto Meli, showing a devotion that continues uninterruptedly over time.

INTERESTING FACTS
The Bueno Fonteno Abyss, currently being explored and studied by speleologists and cave divers, is a vast and extensive complex of caves, tunnels and underground waterways. Among the first 20 in Italy for length, the cave stretches for over 19 km through tunnels and open spaces.
