It is pleasantly located on a promontory in front of Moltrasio at the foot of Mount Bisbino and Colmegnone, is distinguished by the typical characteristics of the medieval town: narrow and winding alleys, houses with stone doorways with wrought iron decorations on the windows and balconies.
The numerous medieval fortifications are still visible remains of the castle on the bank of the lake and the port on the way to Travaina Piazzaga.

Torno were two painters who lived between 400 and 500: Bartolomeo Benzi and Andrea de Passeris, author of some works kept in the Cathedral of Como.

From the town you can climb, following the old path that winds through the woods, to Montepiatto (610 m.), Its houses are inhabited only in summer or on holidays; from the churchyard of the small church, once flanked by a convent of nuns, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the lake. In a local meadow, near the church of St. Elizabeth, you can admire the -pietra pendula-, boulder-shaped fungus poised on a rock.
