• Sala Comacina Lago di Como

Sala Comacina

The small village, laid down on the western side of the Lario, to the slopes of Monte Costone, in front of the Comacina Island, reachable by boat, is one of the most characteristic towns of Lake Como.
The name takes origin from the longobard denomination.

In fact, from the Edict of Rotari the name of - Sala- designed a room or a part of the building and later indicated in the whole of the longobard - curtis-, the part inhabited by the lord.

Sala Comacina, that in the past was called Pieve d' Isola, was considered an important stay center, as the numerous villas that rose along the coast are evidence.

Church of Saint Bartolomeo

Is the result obtained from a eight-nineteenth century restoration of a pre-existing Romanesque building; it keeps some drawn of the original medieval structure.
Inside: we can find, among the ancient frescoes, a Nativity of luinesca school, a monumental altar in baroque wood and a Gloria di San Bartolomeo, frescoed by Carlo Innocenzo Carloni on the vault of the presbitery (century XVII-XVIII), a shovel of the main altar with the Madonna with the Child and Saints by the Fiamminghino (century XVIII).

Villa Rachele or Beccaria

On the tip formed by the sediments of the river Premonte, where an ancient defensive wall perhaps rose, was erected one of the most beautiful villas of Sala, Villa Rachele, called by the people of the town - Puncia-.
It belonged to Cesar Beccaria who accommodated here famous men of letters, among which Alessandro Manzoni and Cesare Cantù.
