Valmadrera

Description

Town in the province of Lecco, overlooking Lake Como, Valmadrera is a charming tourist destination, near the provincial capital. The village has Roman origins, however, it revealed its real appearance around the year 1000: in particular in the late XIII century there were already documents that report about settlements built around the already existing churches in the districts of St. Dionigi, Caserta, al Ceppo and San Tommaso. Throughout the town's history the local families played a major role in all the events.
Among the sights, not to miss: the Sanctuary of the Madonna di San Martino, dating from the early Middle Ages. The building probably had a military role, but was transformed into a place of worship in the XIII century. During the last restoration works a series of original frescoes and ancient architectural structures have been brought to light. Inside it preserves a venerated painting of the XV century depicting the Madonna del Latte.
The Church of Sant'Antonio Abate was begun in 1791 and completed in 1823, committing several architects. The church also contains a Crucifixion of 1879 of the artist Mosè Bianchi and a panel with an early work of the XVI of Lomazzo, which previously belonged to the Sforza Family. The bell tower, erected in 1923, with its 90 meters is the highest of Lombardy.
The ancient Church of St. Dionigi, which preserves its simple and straight lined aspect, keeps inside a series of Gothic frescoes and a precious altar in polychrome marble.
