forte fuentesHistory: Colico is the last town on the eastern shore of Lake Como, at the foot of Mount Legnone.

This area, key point of trade between North and South, has been inhabited since Roman and pre-Roman times.

In the past the town was ravaged several times by both the passage of foreign troops bound for Milan and from repeated pestilence and floods of the river Adda. At the end of the 17th century it was a swamp, but after the reclamation of the plain of Pian di Spagna (1858) it has become a huge natural reserve called "Oasis of Pian di Spagna", the starting point for numerous excursions.

Historical remains are the Fort Fuentes, wanted by Pedro Enriquez de Acevedo, Count of Fuentes, Governor of the Duchy of Milan and Fort and Montecchio North, the best preserved fortress of the Great War in Europe.

Places of spirituality: the ancient Cistercian and Benedictine Abbey of Piona of XII-XIII century, San Rocco, San Fedelino, a small Romanesque temple, San Miro.
