Canzo, points of interest
On the banks of the Ravella. Mercenary captains, saints, artists and entrepreneurs
This route starts from the square of Canzo’s Trenord railway station, continues to the Provostship of S. Stefano, and, across the streets of the old medieval village, reaches Villa Meda and the Church of S. Francesco, also known as Gésa da San Mirètt, in memory of Saint Miro Paredi, the hermit who was born in Canzo, presumably in the thirteenth century. It then delves into the Ravella Valley on the trail of this figure, still much venerated in the area, before returning to the village to discover the remains of the formerly thriving manufacturing activity, and finally arriving at the Canzo-Asso Trenord railway station.
